I've just found the blog! I shall check it regularly now. I get the Loop, and I think it's a marvellous thing.

I'm just kicking around the idea of starting a handcrafts business selling homemade products, and am wondering who to contact about a stall at the market? It probably won't happen until the new year, but it would be really helpful to know what the procedure is for booking a stall, prices, etc.

I'm sure there are plenty of people who'd like to rent an occasional stall rather than on a monthly basis.

Also, is there a restriction on charitable organisations, religious groups, etc.?

Guidelines would be fab!

Loved the market!

By 1pm, when we arrived, the food fair stalls had clearly been doing a roaring trade, with some being down to their last few morsels, so the lesson is to arrive early to catch the full range of wares.

The market up in Market Place was good fun, and the kids with us loved the storyteller tent.

I really do hope this becomes a monthly event - it brought a real bustle and cheerfulness to the town centre.

What a fantastic day....vibrant from first thing. How wonderful to see the town centre brimming with people browsing, children playing, families laughing. Very much anticipating Treacles continued growth and capacity to enrich the town. Thank you! Alex

More great work springing from the Loop. Treacle was a triumph! I had never heard the story of the treacle spill before and neither had I visited the town centre on a Sunday for a stroll and a shop for a very long time. You are reconnecting us with both our history and our place. Well done!

The market was a blast. The kids we were with especially loved the storytelling tent and the bright shiny crafts and antiques stalls. And such a glorious day!

We don't get the local paper, so I'd not have really known about Treacle without the Loop - as it was, the whole family ended up having a really lovely couple of hours on Sunday.

Congratulations on a fabulous market. We had a friend from London staying with us and it was so lovely to be able to take him into a bustling vibrant town centre. This was exactly the sort of thing Macclesfield needed.
