HOT COOKED MEAL Lamont Lewis whips up one of his favorite lunch specials, a Philly steak sandwich, Wednesday on the corner of Eighth Street and 24th Avenue in downtown Meridian. Lewis, 33, of Hickory, sells fresh produce and lunch takeouts from a street cart every weekday.
Lewis said his mother sold fresh produce door-to-door in Meridian "for years" and that's when he was first "introduced to the business." Lewis has been selling food on the downtown streets of Meridian for the past two months.
