With the St Enoch Centre Christmas Markets opening tomorrow Saturday 9th November, we can officially say the festive season has begun in Glasgow. IT’S CHRIIIISTTTMAAAAS!!!Image result for st enoch square christmas market

With Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night over, it is time to get the Christmas decorations looked out and mince pie recipes dusted off. Look out your furry coats and wooly gloves. We all know what it means to see those wooden huts going up at the beginning of November… time for present shopping to be disrupted with Yorkshire pudding wraps and churros with butterscotch sauce. German bratwurst and Gluhwein mulled wine. As well as the candies and almond sweeties we all know and love. The Glasgow Christmas Markets have become such a staple to Winter in the city in recent years, it is hard to overlook the bright lights and delicious aromas. Everybody enjoys the markets, from grannies to babies. However, some of us are guilty of spending a little too much time in the Beer Hall. Oops.Image result for st enoch square christmas market

The Christmas Markets at St Enoch Centre are the first to arrive in the city, and the first to be dismantled. Open until Sunday 22nd December, the lead up to Christmas will be filled with fun at St Enoch’s. With fantastic shops such as Hamley’s, H&M and Zara just a stone’s throw from the markets, you know where dad will be when shopping gets too boring. And whether it’s a coffee or a cool beer, you’ll find it at the St Enoch Centre Christmas Markets. It’s the best time of year, after all!

The markets at George Square open a few weeks later, on Sunday 24th November. So for those who are ready to jingle their bells early this Winter, head down to the bottom end of Buchanan Street to see what traditional Christmas goods the style mile has on offer. It’s important to support the artisan craftsmen, and the handmade items on offer make fantastic pressies. There is everything from toys to jewellery, bags and also candles on offer. Although, there will be no room for Nando’s – the food from these stalls wins every time. Nutella covered doughnuts for dinner? Go on, then.

Open from 10am-8pm every day, there’s always time for a visit to the Christmas Markets. I know everyone here at Glasgow Living will be there for a warm cider or two, and maybe some Turkish delight. We promise you’ll love it!
