Next Market - Saturday August 6

Our next market is planned for Saturday August 6 from 8am to 1pm at the Valla Reserve, Valla Beach.

Our musicians for this market are The Wild Women of Anywhere Beach, a local duo from the Nambucca Valley. Multi-instrumentalist Cathy Welsford has been performing, writing and teaching music all her life whilst singer-songwriter Angie Smith is a music historian with over thirty years’ teaching experience. These funny, creative performers have delighted audiences from Hobart to Cairns with their layered harmonies and skilled musicianship, recently touring southern Queensland and the NSW Central Coast.

Our entertainment includes an appearance by Valley Performing Arts with two performances at 9am and 11am.

Nambucca Youthie will be at our Market with youth based activities and games, help and advice with any problems and the programs available through Nambucca Youthie including Project X. Staff and students from the ShoreTrack Project will also be attending our market and will have plants, products the young people have made and upcycled, books and some vacuum packed dried fruit, chutneys and flavoured salts.

poster Hulistic Hoops with Jesse will be on hand with demonstrations and impromptu lessons for interested people. Come along, remember your childhood, have some fun and get your body moving. Phillida will be there with a craft tent for puzzles and games.

We can also promise you great coffee, cakes and other foodies to whet your appetite.

Help make the Market Plastic Free

Boomerang BagWe are striving for a plastic free and eco friendly Market. Sadly while we are under the influences of the coronavirus pandemic we are unable to provide you with a renewable mug for your hot drink so we ask you to bring your own which the coffee van will be happy to fill. We also encourage Market visitors to bring along their own re-useable bags for their purchases. Free Boomerang Bags are also available for your use; collect yours near thefront entrance.

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 many of which are located at Anderson Park. We have previously outlaid over $15,000 towards a childrens playground and seating, and have installed shading over the playground at a cost in the region of $26,500. A second seating area, including a cover, has also been installed and work was completed to improve the drainage on Anderson Park to make it much more usable after periods of rain. Cricket practice nets have been erected and the installation of netball/basketball courts is also complete.

Help us to set the priorities by coming along to a community meeting or contact us to give us your views.
