I feel like I’ve experienced a moment of déjà vu whilst I’ve been creating the menu for February Treacle Market. Here I am again, wondering what the weather will hold, still conscious I’ve not had a stall at what has become the normal bustle much love Macclesfield Market, and being slightly nervous of all of that, again!!! The weather was awful last month wasn’t it, so much weather in one day was enough to try anyone. It was amazing to see the hardy Treaclers & stall holder braving the elements & sad to see the damage the weather took on some of the stalls, it was a brave day for all…
But it’s a new month, a month of LOVE!! Love has been all around during February around Macclesfield, thanks to the hard work of the Totally Locally Team! Lovely Hearts of love have been popping up everything, declarations of love of all things Macclesfield! So it’s only right, logical & really about time the much loved Treacle Market returned for another outing don’t you think! Oh Treacle Market what incentives have you for us this month! Well let us count the ways! Well, there’s the amazing inaugural Teen Treacle market in St Michael’s church yard, brimming with young entrepreneurs! I’ve heard on the grape vine there’ll be design technology students from Fallibroome Academy, showing off their skills, Macclesfield Community ArtSpace be there will some fab creative activities, the amazing Macc Youth Club will be there & Macc College! Plus all the amazing stalls with an eclectic mix of arts, crafts, clever creations, must have treasures, to die for/can’t live without artisan edibles to list but a few, something for one & all. There’ll be spanking brand new stalls, old favourites, new favourites, yet to be discovered favourites, all there to make an amazing day out, what’s not to love!
Which brings me neatly & predictably to Cake! Lots of delicious mouth watering flavours for you this month, so do pop by Castle Street, on your Treacle Travels, where I’ll have my stall strategically positioned to tempt & tease. I’m looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday, wrap up warm & bring shopping bags & baskets aplenty!! And don’t forget –
