ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Wednesday is National Salami Day - but in St. Louis, it will be Volpi Foods Day.

It’s in honor of the family-run deli and meat shop on Daggett Avenue in the Hill. The shop was founded in 1902 and now generations later, Volpi Foods is the oldest, continuously operating cured meats shop in the United State.

The shop gave away a variety of meats to the first 120 customers who spent more than $30 on Wednesday, September 7.
