Organised by Treacle market founder Jane Munro and stall holder Leigh Jennings, the virtual market will take place between 11am – 2pm on Sunday 29th March, via the Treacle Market Facebook page where Treacle stall holders will be selling a selection of their wares online.

From antiques to crafts, hand made to collected, the market’s organisers will share photos and details of items for sale, along with postage costs for people to peruse from the comfort of their sofa.

The virtual marketplace will also share stall holders’ websites and social media profiles alongside their promoted items for sale. Once purchased, Treacle Market will put buyers in touch with stall holders to arrange payment and safe ‘no contact’ delivery.

Jane Munro, founder of Treacle Market, said: “We respect that the potential sale of just one item won’t cover rent/mortgage/bills during this worrying time for our independent makers, but we hope that this encourages the community of Macclesfield to show support, shop online, and remember Treacle Market for the community it supports and share the love with Treacle’s wonderful stall holders.”

Treacle Market visitors can register their attendance via the Facebook page and will be notified when the stalls are open for business.
