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 are:
- 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 turnleft just before the entry - just follow the Market signs!
The next Valla Beach Community Market will be on Saturday 4 October. This coincides with the Labour Day long weekend.
We are pleased to be able to secure a great local musician for this market. Tony Bowden is a singer/song writer who lives on the Coffs Coast. He is a blues and folk musician playing acoustic and electric slide guitar.
Keep the kids entertained at our jumping castle thanks to Laser'n'Lights of Macksville, and also our Kids andFamilies Craft Tent.
Don't forget that we have a dog friendly site alongside the beautiful Deep Creek with easy access to the beach.

Our recent market on Saturday 2 August was another bumper affair. Anyone that was around at 6am were treated to a magnificant sunrise across Deep Creek. Despite a cool start and the threat of gusty winds, a beatiful sunny day beckoned and the crowds rolled in.
The VW Spectacular was happening at the Valla Beach Tourist Park next door with a late rush of people following their display run to Nambucca Heads and back.
Laser'n'Lights of Macksville (see links on the left) were there with the jumping castle, plus the kids activity tent and face painting to keep the youngsters amused. There was also a martial arts display.
Music was provided by provided by Paul B.Clement and Mark V.Wells who are exciting virtuoso performers of jazz, blues and flamenco classics, cool covers and originals.

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 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.
