Macclesfield’s history as a market town dates back hundreds of years. Today, you’ll find a hugely diverse shopping district of independent shops, retail parks and high street stores, offering something for everyone. For the outdoor enthusiasts looking to kit themselves out for their Peak District ride, hike, trek or climb, the town is full of premium adventure stores to ensure you're fully prepared to tackle the landscape.
Mixed amongst the high street brands, you’ll find regular outdoor street markets as well as a permanent indoor market based at the centrally located Grosvenor Shopping Centre. Taking a stroll along Mill Lane, Chestergate or down the cobbles of Church Street to the Castle Quarter, you’ll find an eclectic mix of quirky businesses, bars and eateries. At Treacle Market, on the last Sunday on the month, enjoy over 160 stalls of original artworks, antiques, books, vintage finds, delicious food & drink plus stalls and information from the local community.
