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 2014/15 are:
- December 6 2014
- February 7
- April 4 (Easter Saturday)
- June 6 (Queen's Birthday long weekend)
- August 1
- October 3 (Labour Day long weekend)
- December 5 2015
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 turnleft just before the entry - just follow the Market signs!
The next Valla Beach Community Market will be on Saturday 6 December. This will be a great opportunity to find that extra special Christmas gift.
As usual we will feature some fantastic live music and for this market we are pleased to feature Lach Keys and Johnny Mac. These two local brothers in arms love to mix up a variety of great songs from the sixties to the present day with some awesome grooves for everyone. Come and sing along or just enjoy in the company of the minstrels. Creating a fun and creative feel to their music Lach n Mac are a pleasure to hear.
Keep the kids entertained at our jumping castle thanks to Laser'n'Lights of Macksville, and also our Kids and Families Craft Tent.
Don't forget that we have a dog friendly site alongside the beautiful Deep Creek with easy access to the beach. But please - keep your dogs on a lead!

Our latest market was another bumper affair. Anyone that was around at 6am were treated to a magnificant sunrise across Deep Creek.
The day coincided with the long weekend and the end of the school holidays so there were plenty of visitors around.
Laser'n'Lights of Macksville (see links on the left) were there with the jumping castle, and face painting to keep the youngsters amused.

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.
