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 8:00am to 1:00pm at the Valla Reserve (also known as “Lion’s Park”), at Valla Beach, a serene and peaceful seaside village. Dates for 2019 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 April 6

Next Market PosterOur next market will be on April 6 2019 with music by Thor Phillips. Thor is an Australian singer-songwriter and guitar virtuoso, whose powerful performances are stirring-up storms across the nation. Thor’s music refuses to be pigeon holed; most call him ‘Alt. Country’ or ‘Roots’... but with a nod to folk, a stomp of bluegrass, and dusting of Americana. They are songs that stay with you long after the guitar strings have stopped humming. His latest album,Higher Ground (released September 2018), is his second full album; showcasing a musical style that is rich and varied, with songwriting that goes straight to the heart.

The kids will be well looked after this month. To start with they can join in Easter Egg Painting with by Phyllida, then there is free Yoga for Kids with Karen at 10:00am. Plus the usual kids entertainment Glitter Tattoos, the Jumping Castle and Kerplunk!

There will be an information booth regarding the new Macksville Hospital so come along armed with all your questions.

Come along and enjoy a large variety of stalls plus our food court that has great coffee, cakes, the Lions van, and much more.

We also encourage Market visitors to bring along their own re-useable bags for their purchases. ’Boomerang bags’ are also available for your use.

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 completed to improve the drainage on Anderson 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.
