Welcome to the Valla Beach Community Market
The Valla Beach Community Association (VBCA) hold a market on the first Saturday of every even month (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, and Dec), focusing on home made and home grown local produce - food, arts, crafts and fantastic musical talent. It runs from 8am to 2pm at the Valla Reserve (also known as “Lion’s Park”), at Valla Beach, a serene and peaceful seaside village. Future dates for 2015 are:
- October 3 (Labour Day long weekend)
- December 5
The location is next to the footbridge across Deep Creek, at the end of Ocean View Drive, and just a kilometre or two from the Pacific Highway. Head towards the Valla Beach Tourist Park and turn left just before the entry - just follow the Market signs!
The next Valla Beach Community Market will be on Saturday October 3. This is also the October long weekend.
This market will focus on Health, Wellness and Fitness with demonstrations, stalls and practitioners to suit the theme, alongside all our regular stalls. Coffee and Qigong - does it get any better than that?
Plus the usual kids attractions - face painting, the Kids and Families Craft tent, and the jumping castle thanks to Laser'n'Lights of Macksville.

After the cancellation of the April market, and a damp June market, we were so pleased to wake up to a bright and sunny, albeit coolish day. But what a day!
This was certainly a vibrant day as didJital were back to entertain us. They were originally scheduled for our Easter Market in April which was sadly cancelled due to the appalling weather.
We also had the usual attractions for the kids; face painting, and the jumping castle thanks to Laser'n'Lights of Macksville.
The Valla Views is published every two months around 10 days before each market and is distributed to households in Valla and Valla Beach. You can download the latest edition by clicking on the image (right).

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 at Anderson Park and we are now almost there. We have already outlaid over $15,000 towards a childrens playground and seating. Our next targets are the provision of shading over the playground and the installation of more exercise equipment at a likely cost in the region of $26,500.
