Weekly market of organic and naturally sourced products
A good market
What started in 2012 with a pop-up of 30 stalls where local farmers could sell their produce, became a regular Saturday market at the racecourse and in 2014 a permanent outlet opened here at the old storerooms of Lakpahana opposite the racecourse. Good Market sells organic and naturally sourced products including food products, skin products and other herbal remedies. They also operate the Good Market Platform selling ethical and all-natural Sri Lankan products to a global market.
