The Good Market

With the world’s resources depleting at exponential rates, it has become vital for us to act sustainably. The Good Market is just one of many platforms in Sri Lanka that calls for environmental friendly and sustainable production and provision of goods operating with the motto ‘good for people and good for the planet’. It has also become a platform for many start-ups aiming to tap into the niche environmentally sustainable market, often called the ‘new economy’.

Best Known For

Shopping and retail:

  • The Good Market is best known for the Saturday fairs that occur weekly, acting as a curated platform that provides small scale producers and social entrepreneurs sell their organic products ranging from healthy food to responsibly sourced apparel and house ware.
