Eastleigh Market is taking on a new role this weekend – alongside stalls selling fruit, veg, bread and other produce, the popular market will serve as a showcase for small businesses as part of the national Small Business Saturday campaign.

Hidden gems from across the local business community will be using the opportunity to promote themselves by having a `shop front' in the form of a market stall during the busy lead up to Christmas.

The one-day event will encourage the public to ‘shop local’ from the diverse range of products, services and handmade goods all in one place.

The event will run from 9am to 4pm tomorrow (Saturday 3 December).
