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 2018 are:

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 - Saturday February 3

Our next market will be February 3 and this month our musicians are Deebee Bishop and Julie Kovendy. They are local musicians that have both performed solo and in various collaborations but have enjoyed playing together from time to time.

Deebee's passion is songs and songwriters. Songs that make people feel something. Whether it’s a classic oldie or a newbie, as long as people want to sing along dance or simply say… “I remember where I was when I first heard that song”.

If she were to choose a favourite genre... she couldn't, because she enjoys most music when it is done well and has been influenced by folk, jazz, country rock, Celtic and Latin American.

There is plenty to keep the kids amused too with face painting and the jumping castle. And then there is Kerplunk!

Meanwhile the big kids can enjoy great coffee and cakes, food from the Lions van and other vendors.

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. A second seating area, including a cover, has also been installed.

In addition, work has started in improving the drainage onAnderson Park which will make is much more usable after periods of rain.

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