Why The Good Market is special ?

This space actually just used to be a storage space but it was transformed by Good Market to give off a cosier vibe than their regular temporary events. It's a lot of clean white walls, wooden paneling and plenty of soothing green just around the shop. Along the side of the shop is a patio space with chairs and tables so it's a bit like a cafe.

Inside are shelves of sealed food and fresh veggies and fruits, much of the stuff you get at the Thursday stalls at Diyatha Uyana. It's not only a shop, so there's organic, healthy food available off the counter at both ends of the shop - by Good Market, LifeFood and The Brown Bean Coffee.


What to explore at The Good Market?

The Good Market is smaller and feels more private than their weekly markets, and if you're someone who wants to stay in shape and eat healthy, you get a decent selection of tasty, organic food here, for good prices considering the standard. The paved floors and green outside also make it a pleasant place to chill out at on a cool day.


How to get to The Good Market?

Lakpahana's huge sign board and wooden eaves are hard to miss from the main street, right opposite the Racecourse building. When you walk in through the big gates and turn to your left, you'll see the Good Market shop.

Good market comes to Colombo Racecourse Grounds every Saturday. They are in the Nuga Tree Car park is at the opposite end of MacD, which is before racecourse when your coming from Independence square side. The good market starts around 10 but doesn't really get going until 11. It plays host to many vendors such as fruit & vegetable sellers, coffee, fruit juice, crepes, pancakes, beauty products and ornaments. The best part is all the items on sale are either organic, locally sourced, chemical free, natural or handmade. They are very reasonably prices and its joy to chat with the vendors. Highly recommended to try the pancakes and coffee.
