We’re working together to create a 21st century economy that is good for people and good for the planet.

There are Good Market approved enterprises working on farming, food, and fashion, energy and waste management, conservation and restoration, health, education, software, finance, business services, and media.

There are restaurants, retail outlets, coworking spaces, and ecovillages, artists and musicians, service clubs, advocacy groups, and more. 

Are you part of an initiative that prioritizes people and planet? Have something to offer? 

It’s free to be Good Market approved and have a public profile on the community platform.

Structure

The marketplace commons was started to increase the visibility of the movement, make it easier for people to get involved, and facilitate trade, collaboration, and collective action.

It’s designed to highlight and support existing networks and community initiatives, integrate with other platforms and software tools, and serve as enabling infrastructure.

Curation and Connection

Current development is focused on supporting marketplace and community connections. The marketplace can be used for any kind of offer or opportunity. It is does not need to involve money. Social commerce and redirect links are available now. Onsite payments are the next step.

There are many ways to get involved:

  • Find and support Good Market approved enterprises in your area and around the world
  • Cocreate by contributing time or resources
  • Catalyze the movement through community groups and networks

Good Market followed a lean startup approach. It began in Sri Lanka in 2012 with no grant funding or external working capital.

The curation process and community were initially developed through weekly marketplace events, retail outlets, and an organic participatory guarantee system (PGS). These social enterprises made it possible to start software development for the global platform in 2016.
