More Log Cabins Articles Traders in Manchester have this week been readying their rustic stalls as the city's popular Christmas markets get underway.
According to the Manchester Evening News, stallholders from Germany, Holland, Italy, France, Poland and Switzerland are joining local merchants for festive trading this year.
"Organisers and engineers have been putting the finishing touches to the log cabin-style stalls all week," said the paper.
"This year some 300 stalls will operate from eight different sites, selling food and drink, jewellery, plants, fashion, cosmetics, photography, art and crafts."
Manchester's main European Christmas market will be held at Albert Square while the German market is taking place in St Ann's Square for another year.
A new French-themed market is also being held in the city's King Street this year.
The news comes after the Daily Telegraph reported last week that the "living" roof of a log cabin in Northumberland has become a haven for a variety of wildlife including a rare breed of goat.
