We love the idea of using less gas but getting more done, and Farmers Park ( is the perfect place for that. The development is home to tons of great shopping opportunities, including Ellecor for home décor, STAXX and 5 Pound Apparel for clothing, Jellybeans for all things kid-related, Studio 417 and Hudson Hawk Barber & Shop for a little pampering, Aviary Creperie & Patisserie for a sweet treat, Metropolitan Farmer for a luscious meal and Barley, Wheat, and Rye Social House for a drink to end the day on the perfect note. Come on a day when Farmers Market of the Ozarks is open, and you can knock out some grocery shopping, too.
