GLASGOW'S Christmas market organisers have revealed which George Square favourites will appear at the St Enoch site after last week's shock cancellation.

As exclusively revealed by the Glasgow Times, George Square's market was scrapped after hosts Market Place Europe struggled to gain access to the site due to COP26 concerns.

However, the group have today confirmed crowd-pleasers Mr Kokkalis with his delicious Greek Gyros and Mrs Puller with her candied nuts & Belgian treats will be setting up stalls near the shopping centre.

The popular Ranch Bar will also move to its new home at St Enoch.

Thousands of visitors are expected to visit this year’s Christmas Market at St Enoch Square from November 21 until December 23.

The construction team will begin work in the coming weeks, hammering, securing structures and building chalets to create the Christmas Village in time for the opening of the markets at 12pm.

Organisers say they are confident that having missed a year of festive celebrations due to Covid last year, there is a huge appetite in the city for some Christmas market cheer.

Chief executive of Market Place, Nick Rhodes, said: “The arrival of the Christmas Market at St Enoch is always eagerly anticipated. It’s fantastic to see so many visitors enjoy the Market every year – both locals and visitors alike.

"Having the Market in the heart of the city provides an invaluable boost to the city’s retail and tourism offering.

"We’re delighted that once again the sights and sounds of the Glasgow Christmas Market will form a focal point for the city centre during the festive season and we encourage people to visit and explore everything else that this wonderful city has to offer.”

As well as local flavour, the market promises to offer something a little bit different with nationalities from all over the world bringing all sorts of unusual foods and gift ideas including crepes from France, Dutch pancakes, Belgian chocolates, an exotic selection of ostrich, wild boar and crocodile burgers, giant bratwurst from the iconic Schwenkegrill and sweets from Italy.

Some new tastes to whet the appetite this year include Noodles, Pad Thai, Salt and Chilli Chicken and for those who like things hot, HellFire Wings.

Visitors can also treat themselves to the well-known Hug in a Mug of Gluhwein or for those with a sweeter tooth, hot chocolate piled high with marshmallows and cream.

There will also be the return of some local favourites such as Mr Benz with his Scottish dresses, hats, scarves and gloves.

With a capacity for 3,250 visitors, St Enoch's Square falls under the capacity of outdoor events which require evidence of vaccination or negative tests.

More than one million visitors came to the market in 2019 contributing to an overall gross economic impact of £87million.
