D for me. Prime Meats is singular subject-hence carries.

Neither Edward’s Market, which is located in the heart of the city, nor Prime Meats, which has several branches in the suburbs, carry grass-fed beef.

A. carry - Use of plural verb CARRY is incorrect for a singular Subject "MEATS". Don't get confused "Prime MEATS" is not plural in this case as it is the name of a Shop/Market. Hence Incorrect
B. are carrying - Use of plural verb ARE is incorrect for a singular Subject "MEATS". Moreover, why to use Present continuous for a statement that conveys a fact. Hence Incorrect
C. have carried - Use of plural verb HAVE is incorrect for a singular Subject "MEATS". Moreover, why to use Present Perfect for a statement that conveys a fact. Hence Incorrect
D. carries - CORRECT
E. do carry - - Use of plural verb DO is incorrect for a singular Subject "MEATS". Hence Incorrect

Neither X nor Y -- the tense depends on whether Y is singular or plural. Y is singular because it refers to one entity hence "carries."

D
