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:
- August 1
- 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 June 6 which happens to fall on the Queen's Birthday long weekend.
Music will be by Keogh who has performed at our market before. He plays a variety of takes on selected covers that compliment his own music. In any given set you will be dealt blues, funky grooves, ripping solos and acoustic melodies.
We'll also have the usual attractions for the kids; face painting, kids activity tent, and the jumping castle thanks to Laser'n'Lights of Macksville.

Our April market, occuring on Easter Saturday, was expected to be a real crowd pleaser with Didjital our draw attraction. Sadly the appaling weather meant we had to cancel the market for the first time. We had in excess of 100mm of rain over the weekend with most falling on the day. We feel so sorry for all our regular stall holders and will keep everything double crossed for future markets.
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.
