The big day is finally here. The Manchester Christmas Markets are back for 2023 with the bratwurst sizzling away and the mulled wine being poured into festive mugs as we speak. Visitors can expect all the familiar sights and sounds of the annual markets, which are open from today (November 10) until Thursday, December 21.

As many will agree, the Manchester Christmas Markets wouldn't be what they are without their impressive array of food and drinks options. There's a wealth of choice across all nine different zones, from gluhwein and bratwurst to steins and crepes covered in chocolate sauce and toppings from some of Manchester's favourite food and drink businesses including Porky Pig, Yard and Coop and The Witch House, amongst others.

We've travelled across the city centre, from Piccadilly Gardens to King Street - and back again - to find all the prices you can expect to pay for your sausages, gluhwein and beer, plus whatever sweet treats you might fancy. And don't forget to factor in the £3.50 Christmas mug deposit scheme when you purchase your hot drinks around the markets - this is refundable with the return of the mug, although you might want to keep it as a nice memento of the markets.
