Welcome to the Valla Beach Community Market
The Valla Beach Community Association (VBCA) holds a market festival 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.
The remaining market date for this year is:
- December 7
Dates for 2014 are:
- February 1
- 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!
The next Valla Beach Community Market will be on Saturday 7 December 2013. This is a fabulous time to look for that special Christmas gift.
Glenn Heath and the Deep Blue Sea are appearing at the Viva Valla event at the Valla Beach Tourist Park the previous evening and will make an appearance at our market.
WIRES will also have a stall where you can come along and talk to experts about native wildlife. They hope to be able to bring along a few critters for you to see.

Another fantastic day - great weather, great music, great entertainment, great crowds, and great stalls.
The music was again sensational - Freedom Summers returned with her repertoire of songs.
There were also a martial arts demonstration by the Nambucca Valley Taekwondo club and the Macksville Public School Circus Troupe showed us their tricks!
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 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.
