AN eco refill shop near Romsey is hosting a Christmas market, to support small businesses.

Lemon and Jinja moved to its new base in February after three years at Basepoint in Abbey Park industrial estate.

This will be its first Christmas market in Belbins Business Park, Cupernham Lane. 

Jesse Dugdale, owner and director, said: “Our markets in our old location were always a huge hit bringing in many people to support small businesses.

“Our community market is full of fellow small businesses - crafters, food trucks, a gin distillery, vintage clothes, jewellery and more. We are filling our upstairs with a mini makers' market and will have two food trucks to keep you well fed throughout the day.
