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 2016 are:
- 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 April 2 2016. Music will be by Freedom Summers.
As usual there will be great coffee and a good range of food outlets, both hot and cold, plus the usual entertainment for kids with a Jumping Castle thanks to Laser 'n' Lights, face painting by Bellatopia, yoga for kids and our kids craft tent with Phillida from the library.

Rain in the early hours looked to put a dampner on the day but just as the market staff arrived at 6am the rain stopped. The rest of the day was mostly sunny with a brief passing shower. Unfortunately the overnight rain meant that some of our regular stall holders took the day off but even so there was a sizeable market and good crowds.
Our scheduled entertainer, having to travel 70km with potentially wet conditions at the market site, also decided that the electrical risk was too great and chose not to attend. Fortunately the market staff were quickly able to provide an alternative source of music.
Our food court included our regulars selling great coffee, German sausages, Vietnamese cuisine, and our regular supporters, the Lions van.The new Valla Nature stall was again present and the volunteers manning the stall were kept busy all day.
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 and will soon be installing shading over the playground at a likely cost in the region of $26,500.
