Nashville Farmers Market

Fresh vegetables, handmade pottery, blooming flowers, restaurants and more. This is one of my favorite places to visit in Nashville. Whether it be grabbing a beer at The Picnic Tap with some friends, or grabbing a coffee at Buttercake Babe’s while doing your weekly grocery shopping, you can find it here at the Nashville Farmers Market.

While you’re here, make sure you browse outside, but make your way inside as well to check out the international food market and Batch Nashville – a local boutique that sells personal gifts for all types of people. And then catch your husband outside waiting for you to stop shopping like:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another plus about this Farmers Market, is the fact that it is next door to Centennial Park. Walk through the Farmers Market and out the doors, and you will be looking at a strip of land that leads directly to the State Capitol.

Five Daughters Bakery

Simply the most delicious doughnuts ever. This business is family owned by a couple who has – as the name states – 5 daughters. Each doughnut takes about three days to create, crafted with 100 layers of thin, croissant dough. They have four locations in and around Nashville, TN, but also have a location in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. They also have vegan doughnuts, for those of you who avoid animal-made products. And those too, are fabulous. Check out their website HERE, and then find a Five Daughters the next time you are in town.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

Known for their Nashville Hot Chicken, Hattie B’s is the go-to. I sadly do not have any pictures, but google them and you will find plenty. If you need a taste of southern food, this is the place to stop. Look at their menu HERE.

Festivals

Whether it be Oktoberfest, International Fest, Cherry Blossom Festival, Pumpkinfest, or others. There is always something going on in this great city to keep you occupied. The food trucks are on point, beer garden’s are just right, and the tons of people surrounding you make it all the more exciting. You can even find a Taco Festival in late September, and a different beerfest every weekend in October. For a full list of festivals, click HERE.

The Walking Bridge

The Cumberland River Walking bridge is right beside Music Row, and gives a stunning view of Nashville, both during the night and day.

The Gulch

One of the best parts of Nashville to shop due to its fast growing urban-style is the Gulch area. There are several clothing stores, local bars and restaurants within walking distance. And once you’re finished shopping with a Starbucks coffee in hand, you leave feeling hip and modern no matter what your age! This area also has plenty of residential buildings if you’re looking for a place to live, although it is VERY pricey (>$1,200/month).

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Jeni’s unique flavors keep you on your toes every time you walk in. Although this isn’t a local store, I feel it still needs to be mentioned because of how different it is! The flavor pictured below is Lavender. Definitely one of my favorites! Take a leap out of your comfort zone and try something different here the next time you’re in the Nashville area!
