Centertown is a great place to live if you’re looking for a small-town atmosphere, yet need to be close to a larger suburban area, such as Jefferson City. Check out the abundance of beautiful trees in the fall as you drive around Centertown.
Centertown is known to many Mid-Missourians for Longfellow’s Garden Center, just a short trip down Highway 50 through the town. Whether you have a green thumb or not, this is the place to come to be inspired by the varieties of trees, shrubs and their large inventory of plants. Check out their website for the fun activities they host for families throughout the year – and don’t be afraid to ask a “silly” question – their staff knows it all!
Shirk’s Market is in Centertown, where fresh produce such as tomatoes, pumpkins, and corn on the cob are there for the picking. Shirk’s also makes a large variety of bulk-type foods, including spices and chocolate goodies, and the best tasting bakery goods you won’t want to miss; they even make fresh sandwiches for the asking! Shirk’s also has a greenhouse and garden center for your planting needs.
