The Christmas market opened in Glasgow yesterday after weeks of anticipation. 

While the George Square market was cancelled for the second year in a row, the St Enoch square venue is up and running. 

Earlier today the Glasgow Times visited the market to have a look around.

Open until December 23, there is plenty of time before Christmas to pop along and explore.

The iconic inflatable snowglobe is back for fun photo opportunities with family and friends. Prices begin at £10 for entry and one photo. 

If you are hungry there are food stalls showcasing world cuisine from Thailand, Greece, France, Turkey and more.

The popular American inspired bar The Ranch has returned, offering mulled gin and cider, hot buttered rum and hot apple pie moonshine. 

Stalls selling handmade wooden gifts, cheeses and chocolate, jewellery, knitwear and personalised Christmas decorations may be helpful in choosing some unique Christmas gifts.

There are some signs requesting that face coverings be worn, so it may be wise to bring a mask. 

Some stalls are only accepting cash, so visitors may want to bring some cash along with them.

Alternatively, the nearest bank machine is located at Royal Bank of Scotland right next to the markets. 

The market area is free to enter any time from 10am to 7pm on Monday to Wednesday and 10am to 8pm Thursday to Sunday.
