Whenever I travel around Missouri, I always find the most interesting and unique stores along the way. You know, the millions of highway billboards with "antique store" or "historical sight", those make me want to stop at each and every exit. My favorite along the way was Nature's Cellar, which had tons of produce they sold from the nearby farmers and many antiques. Central Missouri is quite the spot.
My best friend took me to the farmer's market while I was there, which was quite smaller than my local one, but had many things to offer. I enjoyed some fresh iced coffee, blueberries, and potato bread while wandering around. Sometimes, smaller is better too.
