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 specializes in organic fruit and vegetable products under the name Eliya. People living in Battaramulla, Thalawathugoda, Pelawatte, Malabe, Kaduwala, Pita-Kotte, Nawala, and Rajagiriya can now enjoy Good Market community products and events in their own neighborhood. The shop and café are open every day of the week from 8 am to 8 pm.

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.”

“If you visit the Saturday Good Market event in Colombo, you are only seeing the tip of the iceberg,” explains AchalaSamaradivakara, a Good Market co-founder. “Good Market is a platform for anyone who cares about people and the planet. There is space for everyone: conscious consumers, artists, performers, home gardeners, voluntary organizations, university start-ups, rural producers, and established businesses.”

David Pieris Global Ventures CEO Suhashini Chandramohan added, “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. We at DPGV are committed to the organic way of life as is reflected in our products and look forward to welcoming like-minded customers to our shop.”

Speaking at the event, Good Market vendor Buddhika Gunasekera said “Good Market gives us the opportunity to reach people and create awareness of our product. Now we proud to say that we have a shop to sell our products in Battaramulla as well, thanks to David Pieris Global Ventures.We are hoping for more Good Market franchises around the country.”

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 recognized by IFOAM Organics International. Consumers are encouraged to join for PGS farm visits to meet the farmers and learn more about organic production and verification.
