WHERE TO FIND TASTIEST TREATS AT THE MARKETS ; Hunt Down the Best Food and Drink at This Year's Christmas Markets with Our Guide to What's on Offer

Article excerpt

NAVIGATING Manchester's annual Christmas markets to find the tastiest treats isn't an easy job.

In the 10 different market spots, there are lots of new spaces, with food and drink available in most zones.

MANCHESTER PIE AND A PINT: Bringing some traditional British flavours to this year's European markets is the Great North Pie Company, which has a brilliant selection of made in Manchester pies served with made in Manchester chutney and gravy, plus - if you fancy it - a pint of made in Manchester Cloudwater Motueka lager to go with it. …
