They’re a Christmas Markets staple and they’re returning this year to feeds thousands of you.
Porky Pig’s famous Yorkshire pudding wrap stall is back at the Manchester Christmas Markets for the sixth time since debuting back in 2016.
The Markets, which are back after two years out due to the pandemic, will be here from November 12 until December 22, with Porky Pig and a number of regulars set for their own grand return.
However, it’s even more important you give Porky Pig a visit this year as they recently announced the closure of their city centre restaurant in Manchester – blaming the pandemic for its downfall like many other restaurants and businesses over the past 18 months.
Markets will be set up in six locations across the city. Councillor Pat Karney said: “We only decided yesterday, we had to put them through every Public Health test and that’s the whole approach to Christmas this year, making it safe for traders and the public.
“We’re delighted we can go ahead with this. Tens of thousands of jobs for people depend on Christmas trade.
“We’ve all been in lockdown mode for so long and we all ache to get together with friends and family so we’re doing everything possible to keep people safe and we’re keeping it under review.
“So it’s green lights for Manchester markets. Christmas is not cancelled, it’s my favourite time of the year and I am the Christmas spokesperson on the council, the only one in the country, so Christmas is definitely going ahead.”
