German Market Comes to Albert Square

In a fit of jealousy at St Ann’s Square’s fantastic Dutch Market, Albert Square have had to go one better and bring us a market from Holland’s larger neighbour, Germany.

Perfectly timed to coincide with the World Cup kick off in Germany next week, Albert Square’s annual German Market and beer garden will return to Manchester for its third summer to fill Albert Square with regional delights such as schnitzel, sauerkraut and malt beer, all served in typical wooden chalets.

A brief warning about the German Market though: This market is going to be very authentic, so you may actually believe that you are in Germany. If this happens, simply walk for five minutes in any direction and you’ll be back in Manchester.

But if Germany’s your thing, then why not stay there all day? You won’t even be bothered anymore that you’re not in the real Germany for the World Cup.

The market will be bustling with a host of actual real life German traders, shipped across especially from Germany to bring lots of authentic German things to us Mancunians. There’ll be plenty of Bavarian cheeses on offer as well as some hearty big pan cuisine, perfect food to line your stomach before sampling the German beer and wine on offer. Make sure that you don’t miss the specialist malt beers, but as always, drink responsibly kids.

Councillor Paul Murphy, executive member for markets said: “This market is a great event and very popular. Manchester’s Markets are always warmly received and I am sure that people will enjoy socialising, eating and soaking up the continental atmosphere this summer. There is plenty to choose from and it makes a great way to spend your lunch or to unwind after work. We can only hope the Manchester weather shines on the market too.”
