Every festive season in Manchester without fail, we get extra excited for one thing, and one thing only: Porky Pig’s famous Yorkshire pudding wraps. Serving at the markets since 2016, the pop-up street food spot has become a Christmas institution in the city, and now, they’re returning for 2022.
After confirmation that the Christmas markets would be returning to Manchester this year, Porky Pig took to social media, saying: “Manchester Christmas markets 2022 we are coming for you bigger than ever this year. we are excited to get back to what we do best.”
Returning with their beloved wraps, which can be filled with a meat of your choice, guests will be able to enjoy a selection of pork, gammon, beef, chicken and lamb, with veggies, stuffing and a choice of gravies to finish it off with, all wrapped up in a tasty parcel made from a giant Yorkshire pudding.
Attracting queues down the street for the delicious creations, Porky Pig regularly experiments with new showstoppers, which have previously included battered pigs in blankets and even massive pigs in blankets wrapped in a huge Yorkie pud. This year, fans will also be able to fill up on battered pigs in blankets, pigs in blankets barms, Yorkshire puddings filled with carvery, and the return of the giant pig in a blanket wrapped in a Yorkie pud.
The Manchester Christmas Markets are set to return on November 10th til December 22nd, with the likes of Yorkshire pudding wraps from Porky Pig and a number of other regulars returning for the festive fun. Last year, Porky Pig announced the closure of their city-centre restaurant, citing the pandemic as the reason for their decision. Porky Pig will continue to trade at Manchester Christmas Markets and Old Trafford.
