Macclesfield Treacle Market

Each month in Macclesfield and on the last Sunday of the month Macclesfield holds the Treacle Market and it has recently been able to return to a more active event following the easing of Covid restrictions. The most recent Treacle Market at the end of September turned out to be a very well attended with both lots of stalls containing a great of many varieties of goods from food to fauna, apples to zebras as well as lots of happy purchasers and browsers

Prior to the market Vince was able to get very positive encouragement from the market’s organisers for us to come down and photograph it. They were very keen that we take part and help them capture the atmosphere of the market in order to help publicise the event. It also has to be said that all the stall holders were very happy for us to come down and take photographs which made the daunting task of street photography a pleasure rather than a challenge!

So a hardy group of us from the club ventured forth on Sunday with various types of cameras taking various types of images to try and capture the day. The above is just a selection of the many images we managed to capture. The above is just a small selection of the images captured. Thanks to Vince, Sarah, Martin and Kevin for the images.

A big thanks also to Vince for organising this and encouraging us to take part.
