Good Market now in Battaramulla

The Good Market was opened in Battaramulla recently. The new shop at 137 Pannipitiya Road, Battaramulla includes fresh organic fruits and vegetables, natural food, body, home, and garden products from more than 130 Good Market approved enterprises, home delivery services, a space for community meetups and events, and the Farm Gate Café, a juice, coffee, and snack bar operated by a Good Market community member.

The new outlet is a social franchise operated by David Pieris Global Ventures (Pvt) Ltd (DPGV) , a David Pieris Company and a Good Market approved enterprise that specialises in organic fruit and vegetable products under the name Eliya.

The shop and café are open every day of the week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

According to co-founder Achala Samaradivakara, “Good Market is based on the idea that we create the world we live in. ​We make decisions every day that affect our health, our loved ones, our community, and our environment. If we stop and think about the consequences of our actions, we have the opportunity to make better choices and create a better world.”

CEO of David Pieris Global Ventures, Suhashini Chandramohan said, “We are delighted to bring Good Market back to Battaramulla where it has its original roots. This will allow people in the area to pick up the organic and natural products synonymous with the Good Market without having to fight traffic into Colombo.”

All farm products at the shop are either certified organic by an accredited third-party certifier or verified under an organic participatory guarantee system (PGS) that is recognised by IFOAM Organics International.

Good Market is a curated community of social enterprises and responsible businesses that are ‘good for people and good for the planet’.”
