You’ve either experienced Lloyd’s amazing tacos or you haven’t but one thing is certain they are definitely the pioneers of food trucks in Buffalo and they have amazing food.
In order to bring their delicious food to more of Buffalo more of the time they have started a kickstarter campaign to raise the funds for a second food truck.
From their kickstarter page
“It’s our mission to expand our quest to bring you fresh eats every single day, we are grateful that you love our tasty takes on traditional tacos and burritos. We hate that we can’t satisfy your Lloyd craving more often, so we ask that you kindly support the cause and pledge to our project.
We are using Kickstarter as a vehicle to help us mobilize our customers into this concerted effort. It will allow us to pool together the funds needed for the down payment of our second truck, Lloyd Dos. Your generosity will not go unnoticed! You will be handsomely rewarded for your participation. We sincerely appreciate your help.”
They are seriously good guys and deserve all of the praise they constantly get, if you can please help them out. The min. pledge is $1 but starting at $10 and going up in increments of $10 you will get totally awesome gifts as a thank you.

The region’s biggest holiday spectacle in a generation, the inaugural Niagara Holiday Market will be a 37-day winter wonderland in Niagara Falls, New York; opening on Friday, November 25 and running through New Year’s Day 2012. The Market is aiming to be on par with the memorable shopping destinations of Europe’s Christkindlmarkets and retail arcades.
Local, regional and national retailers such as Melissa & Doug, Tony Walker & Co. and Biscoff Gourmet have joined Merchant Row on Old Falls Street, while over 20 independent artisans will showcase and sell their wares through the traditionally online community marketplace, Etsy Studio, as it comes to life in a workshop-style space.
World-renowned musical talent will headline the Holiday Concert Series with the Canadian Tenors kicking off their Holiday Concert Tour on November 26 at the Conference Center Niagara Falls, followed by Aaron Neville on December 1, Elisabeth Von Trapp on December 6-7 and the Buffalo Philharmonic’s “A Visit With St. Nick” on December 17. All concerts will be held at the Conference Center Niagara Falls on Old Falls Street, with tickets available at www.niagaramarket.com.
716knit is an independent yarn painter/dyer who has a gorgeous assortment of products for your next arts and crafts project. She uses a nearby farm to stock her wool, and hand-crafts each skein personally. Also, you’ll notice that each yarn has the name of a quote from cult-favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
This week, 716knit is debuting (along with Buffalo-based colleague KnitCore Buffalo) at the Lancaster Farmer’s Market. The Farmer’s Market runs Saturday August 27 from 7am-1pm, and is located on Broadway and Aurora (10 Aurora is a great GPS marker).
Both vendors have an Etsy page as well, if you are unable to make it to Lancaster this weekend:
