Take a strong dose of history, combine it with great little shops, an up-and-coming Market Square, award-winning restaurants, and a village feel where the people know each other and welcome newcomers…and you’re talking about Nolensville, Tennessee.
Now one of the hottest family destinations in middle Tennessee, Nolensville is a great example of a small town feel with an excellent location and great amenities.
Even as we write this, a town center Market Square is being designed, funded and built. The vision for this new downtown gathering place includes spaces for the community to gather, with children playing in open areas, people wandering in and out of locally owned shops, and friends sipping coffee outdoors at their favorite bistros or enjoying a leisurely lunch at one of the many great food stops. It will have a strong local feel coupled with great things to do.
In Nolensville, neighborhoods are growing, churches are springing up and the excellent Williamson County schools anchor the community. The town truly accommodates the old and the new harmoniously—you can stop by the six properties listed on the Historic Register or mark your calendar and enjoy a morning or afternoon at annual events like the Buttercup Festival, coming up April 14. The Buttercup Festival is an all-day downtown event featuring live music, great food, games, artisan vendors and of course, buttercups to enjoy. Later this year, check out the Broken Wheel Festival, which brings in great live music to raise funds to support Round-Up for Nolensville, a local organization serving residents in need with food (in partnership with the Nolensville Food Pantry), clothing, medical expenses, housing, and transportation assistance, school and career necessities.
Starting May 5 through October 2, be sure to visit the Nolensville Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning between 8 a.m. and Noon at the historic Nolensville school. This producer-only market offers fresh, local food, including organic or naturally grown produce, meats, baked goods, farm fresh eggs, crafts and food trucks from local farmers and artisans. The Nolensville Farmer’s Market is a great place to pick up your weekend groceries, grab a bite to eat and meet your neighbors.
