Lamb’s market offers hot meals, fresh produce

If you drive U.S. 60 between Lexington and Winchester, there’s a great place to stop for breakfast or lunch. Arrettia Lamb took over the old Shopper’s Market across from the Sky Vue Drive-In on April 1. At Lamb’s Shopper’s Market, 5920 Lexington Road in Winchester, you can get deli sandwiches anytime. But from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Lamb serves blue plate specials. Depending on what she wants to cook, you can get meatloaf and mashed potatoes, lasagna, or chicken pot pie. Lamb buys local produce from neighboring farmers to prepare meals, and also to sell. The Wednesday special is “tops and dogs” (two hot dogs with homemade chili and tater tots for $3.50). Breakfast, from 6 to 10 a.m., includes country ham, bacon, eggs, and sausage biscuits. Store hours at Lamb’s Shopper’s Market are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Call (859) 744-9413.

BBQ spot is moving

 Sarah’s Corner Café, at the corner of Winchester and Cleveland roads, will close Friday. But don’t worry. The smoker is just moving from the outskirts of town to 720 Henry Clay Boulevard, and will re-open in a couple of weeks.
Sarah’s is known for its BBQ cooker attached to a pickup that’s parked in front of the store. “We have a smoker ordered that is twice the size of the one we have now,” owner Ralph Egbert said. Sarah’s new home will be in the former spot where The Lunch Box was located.
