Manchester Christmas markets brings £90 million to the local economy

The Manchester Christmas Markets returned this week and brought with them the promise of a boost to the local economy.

The Markets are one of the few over the past few years to steadily grow year on year, with market research Colliers confirming Manchester is the top rated shopping destination outside of London.

Manchester Markets bring unique gifts to shoppers

This years Christmas Markets is expected to surpass last years numbers where over 9 million people flocked to the Manchester Christmas Markets over the six weeks they are open.

In the first two weeks of 2017 almost 80,000 mugs of Gluhwein and Beers were sold. Figures which massively buck local trends in the Brexit economy. Manchester will be hoping for a similar Christmas surge following closures of famous restaurants and chains such as Primark and New Look posting worrying figures.

The Christmas Markets in Manchester are famous for their array of Food and Drink stalls selling everything to Warm Gluhwein to German Sausages.

The amount of boutique stalls continues to attract shoppers, selling handmade gifts and Jewellery to packed crowds.
