The CAN Market was created as a platform to support micro-entrepreneurship from across the island, where it is scheduled to commence from August 28, 2020, onwards and will take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.


The Chief Guest , Sri Lankan Cricket Legend Muttiah Muralitharan, will be gracing the launch on the 28th of August, Friday at 4:30pm.  


The weekend market will feature vendors from around Sri Lanka showcasing their export quality products at wholesale rates, whilst allowing them the opportunity to form new trade partnerships with bulk buyers.

The CAN Market further supports and features recycle & up-cycle initiatives and products, and will be an opportunity for creative entrepreneurs to showcase their innovative products & services to the B2C & B2B markets.


Speaking with Creative Isle, Founder - Keshini Ann Suraweera, she noted “The crux of this project was birthed during the imposed COVID-19 lockdown, when most creative entrepreneurs experienced a downward trend in growth, stunting their ability to continue with their business efficiently. Identifying the gap in the current business landscape, I wanted to provide local vendors with a space where they could showcase their raw talent, which may otherwise have been undiscovered simply due to the lack of a platform to present themselves.”
