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 2017 are:
- February 4
- April 1
- June 3
- August 5
- October 7
- December 2
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!
Next Market - Valla Fair Sunday January 1 2017
The next Valla Beach Community Market will be in February but if you can't wait that long then January 1 will be the annual Valla Fair which is run by the Lions Club of Valla Inc.
Despite some threatening weather and a hot day forecast, the rain stayed away until the market closed. A huge crowd visited the more than 90 stalls and devoured everything on sale at the Lions Van.
Music was by Paul B Clement accompanied by Michele. The Valla Voices also performed.
Our food court included our regulars selling great coffee, Vietnamese and German cuisine, home made cakes, blueberry pancakes, and our regular supporters, the Lions van.
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 have recently installed shading over the playground at a cost in the region of $26,500.
We are also working with TAFE Furniture Design students to erect some custom seating at various locations around Valla and Valla Beach. For more details see our Community News page.
