Macclesfield Treacle Market

Why ‘Treacle’?
Macclesfield is known as Treacletown referring to the story of when a horse drawn wagon overturned, spilling its load of treacle onto the cobbles.

This busy market is a fun way to spend your Sunday morning when staying on a Cheshire Farm. Meet the local producers and craft makers at
Macclesfield Market Place, Butter Market and the surrounding streets.
Stock up on the Cheshire Cheese on sale or perhaps the local beer will be your souvenir of choice to remember your  stay on a Cheshire Farm.
Browse the stalls for antiques, jewellery and crafts as the live music brings the town to life.
The perfect place to pick up some local produce for a very local picnic when staying in the Cheshire Countryside! Macclesfield is within easy reach of many of the Cheshire Farms which offer bed and breakfast or self catering.
