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 2015/16 are:
- December 5 2015
- February 6 2016
- April 2 2016
- June 4 2016
- August 6 2016
- October 1 2016
- December 3 2016
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 December 5. This will be our last market before Christmas so the perfect time to look for that extra special present.
Music will be by Rod Dowsett, an acclaimed Australian Country Music singer. He is a regular performer at the Tamworth Country Music Festival reaching the Busking Finals 5 years in a row. Rod is continually touring Australia in his 12 meter Tour Bus taking his music out to the remote areas of Australia. We are delighted to welcome him to Valla Beach. For more details see his website.
The market will include all the usual kids attractions - face painting, the Kids and Families Craft tent, and the jumping castle thanks to Laser'n'Lights of Macksville.
But wait - there's more! A new feature will be Yoga for Kids with Karen at 11.30am. This was previewed at our last market and was so popular Karen wants to make it a regular feature!

The day was given over to demonstrations of yoga, pilates, zumba, qigong, bootscooting, tae kwon do, judo, and included demonstrations by the Vallarinas amongst others.
The new Valla Nature stall was again present as well as great coffee and food including japanese and vietnamese cuisine.

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.
