Kala Pola Art Market

Market in Colombo

Every Sunday morning the broad avenue Ananda Coomaraswamy Mawatha south of Viharamahadevi Park comes alive with colour as local artists display their works at the Kala Pola Art Market. This weekly explosion of colour is an outgrowth of the original market, a huge annual event still held the third Sunday of January when up to 500 artists display their work.

The market is a kaleidoscope of creativity from across the nation and you might just find a bargain-priced treasure. On other days of the week, you'll still find a few vendors hawking their colourful wares.
