Avon Prime Meats is located at 395 West Main Street (Rt.44) in Avon, and it's a fantastic local marketplace. You can typically find exotic meat year round there, so if you are craving alligator meat, there's your hook-up. Avon Prime is also where I go if I want to stare at a genuine Wagyu Beef strip. One of these days, I will be able to afford one.

Earth Day 2023 is Saturday, and it's an annual event held in support for environmental protection. In support of Avon Prime and other fellow carnivores with senses of humor, I think it's an inventive way to celebrate the Earth, and all of it's bounties. Some choose fiddleheads, and others Elk rack & medallions, there are many ways to celebrate, right?
