Next Market - Saturday June 4

Weather permitting, our next market is planned for Saturday June 4 from 8am to 1pm at the Valla Reserve, Valla Beach.

Our musicians for this market are Riverbed Bloomers, a duo from Ulong that are delightful and entertaining. Riverbed Bloomers weave honeyed harmonies through poetic bush ballads, alt-country stompers, roaring sea shanties and modern Western, steeped in sorrow.

The entertainment does not stop there as Shimmy Mob will be on hand to demonstrate bellydancing with two performances at 9am and 11am. Shimmy Mob raise awareness of Domestic Abuse and promote positive body image whilst having fun.

posterAs usual we will feature various other attractions but we are still working on the exact details. As soon as these are confirmed the website will be updated so check again soon.

But wait - there's more. The Bubble Lady will be providing the market with a wonderful show from 9:30-11:30am. Come along and don’t miss your chance to see how these bubbles can be made. Also Hulistic Hoops with Jesse, demonstrations and impromptu lessons for interested people. Come along, remember your childhood, have some fun and get those hips moving. For more details on these are other activities click on the Valla Views image below.

We can also promise you great coffee, cakes and other foodies to whet your appetite.

Remember that dogs are welcome but must be on a lead.

Help make the Market Plastic Free

Boomerang BagWe are striving for a plastic free and eco friendly Market. Sadly while we are under the influences of the coronavirus pandemic we are unable to provide you with a renewable mug for your hot drink so we ask you to bring your own which the coffee van will be happy to fill. We also encourage Market visitors to bring along their own re-useable bags for their purchases. ’Boomerang bags’ are also available for your use.

Supporting the Community

The market is an initiative of the Valla Beach Community Association to raise money for the protection, repairs and positive growth of Valla Beach along with creating an avenue for networking and bringing the community together for good times and great bargains.

The markets contribute funds towards projects many of which are located at Anderson Park. We have previously outlaid over $15,000 towards a childrens playground and seating, and have installed shading over the playground at a cost in the region of $26,500. A second seating area, including a cover, has also been installed and work was completed to improve the drainage on Anderson Park to make it much more usable after periods of rain. Cricket practice nets have been erected and the installation of netball/basketball courts is also complete.

Help us to set the priorities by coming along to a community meeting or contact us to give us your views.
