Food truck alley to hit popular Brandon parking lot twice per month

The parking lot at 515 North Splitrock Boulevard in front of Tally Ho Art Gallery and KingBird Coffee has become a popular destination spot over the past year.

The lot has hosted a Farmers Market each Saturday during the summer and has also been the site of recent winter Farmers Markets and holiday markets around the holidays.

Now Tally Ho and KingBird are taking the lot to a new level by introducing Food Truck Alley on the first and third Thursday of every month from 5-7 p.m. The bi-weekly event will have several food trucks from the area parked in the lot. 

The first Alley event was March 4 with six trucks in attendance. Tally Ho owner Lamont Hunt said they’re hoping to keep the alley running through the spring, summer and even into the winter months if weather cooperates.

Food trucks are aligned in the parking lot of Tally Ho Art Gallery for Food Truck Alley on Thursday, March 3, 2021.

KingBird is extending its hours during the Alley Thursdays for additional dining and seating.

“We really just want to keep bringing things to Brandon,” said Hunt, who grew up in Brandon but spent many years in California before returning to open Tally Ho with his sister, Heather Taguchi, last summer. “This will be cool and we’ll do it as long as we can. We’ll watch the weather when it turns cold, but we’ll play it by ear. If we have another mild winter, we’ll go as long as we can. We don’t have an end date.”
