All of these items are ideal for special gifts or party-bag fillers.

I have always sewn and a few year ago I took a City & Guilds Course in Soft Furnishings where one of the things the course covered was decorative cushions which I loved making.
I then needed an outlet for all the cushions I was making so I took a stall at Abbey Mills I never thought I would enjoy it there as much I have done.
All the cushions are personalised as requested by customers and I have a portfolio of designs already made. I also make personalised Bunting and children’s bags and aprons as well as throws and hearts which are also personalised. I hope to see you at my stall Saturdays and Sundays.
Hi, we are Patrik’s cheese and chutney, two people who are passionate about what we make and sell.
We make all our own preserves, packed with fresh fruit, chutneys and pickles using only fresh vegetables with no preservatives or colourants.
We also have another passion, which is the fact that this country produces the best cheese in the world and we are proud to sell a large selection which you won’t find in your local supermarket with some hidden treasures you may have never tried before! We must confess to a couple of cheeses not British but essential, a 2 year old Parmiaggiano Reggiano, a Greek Feta and a Gouda with cumin seeds.
We also sell beautiful breads made by a clever Sicilian, wonderful unblended honeys made in Whyteleafe Surrey by a couple so committed to protecting bees and teaching bee keeping to others that they have built their own school! Hen and duck eggs laid in Godstone, apple juices grown in Lamberhurst by two very talented people who also believe in honest food and fresh meat which we can prove the provenance of.
Last but not least we have a selection of naughty sides, including; homemade millionaires shortbread, chocolate brownies, fruit flapjacks and muffins all of which have no calories on weekends and are homemade!
Please visit us at Merton Abbey Mills Friday, Saturday and Sunday next to the Colour House Theatre, we look forward to seeing you there and supporting your local market.

When I found out (aged 55) I was going to be made redundant, Fivepoint Design Limited and pickpics.co.uk was formed. The first is a graphic design business -my chosen profession.
The second one is pickpics.co.uk, my hobby. pickpics.co.uk is the business I really enjoy doing. Going to different parts of London, chatting to locals, enjoying the atmosphere, walking miles to get a good shot, photography is something I have loved doing ever since enrolling at art college in the 1970's, and the best thing is, you have a product everyone can enjoy. pickpics.co.uk covers two subject matters- the London scenes- Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament etc. etc. and the Old London, the shops, streets and people of areas that are still standing or haven't as yet, as we called it in the 80's, been yuppified.
My stall at Merton Abbey Mills sells my photographs and also offers a pencil portraiture service, drawing people and pets from
You can see me at the market every Sunday.
