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. Dates for 2014 are:
- April 5
- June 7
- August 2
- October 4
- December 6
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!

Another glorious day; with fantasic weather and our fabulous market location at the Valla Reserve down by Deep Creek, what could possibly be better.
Music for the February was by the very talented Keogh.
We were also delighted to see the return of the jumping castle thanks to Laser'n'Lights of Macksville - see links on the left.

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 an estimated $40,000 for projects at Anderson Park and we are now three quarters of the way there. We have already outlaid over $15,000 towards a childrens playground and seating and our next target is the provision of cricket nets and exercise equipment there.
