Thursday At The Good Market
Having opened to the public last December, The Good Market has swiftly built a reputation among the environmentally conscious population of Colombo as a weekly festival of natural foods, local art and crafts, and live entertainment. What sets the Market apart from the average pola is that it is a curated event, with each stall serving some good to society. The Market allows small and medium sized entrepreneurs to sell their products without giving up an arm and a leg to commercial institutions. Colombo has an increasing population of educated consumers that do not want to feed their families pesticides and preservatives, and so the Market has carved this niche and secured a loyal customer base.
