'Lamb deli' coming to Reading Terminal Market

Border Springs Farm has inked a lease.

'Lamb deli' coming to Reading Terminal Market

How about an all-lamb deli?

Border Springs Farm - a lamb purveyor to top kitchens in D.C., Virginia and the South - will take over the recently vacated Basic 4 space at Reading Terminal Market.

Owner Craig Rogers was shepherded to market management by chef Jennifer Carroll. His farm is in Patrick Springs, Va., and his stock in trade is humanely raised lamb.

His stand - expected to open in late February - will feature Rogers' own fresh and frozen lamb cuts plus artisan lamb dishes such as shepherd’s pie, chili, pot pies, sausage and stew.

He has a similar retail stand at the new Union Market in Washington, D.C. (See this piece about it.)

Reading Terminal has been sizzling of late. After the mid-2012 renovation, there's Wursthaus Schmitz. 

A few weeks away: KeVen Parker of Ms. Tootsie's will open Keven Parker's Soul Food Cafe (where Delilah's was) and Valley Shepherd Creamery will be up and running with its artisan cheesemaking.
