  • I have tried to like The Factory! It just seems so empty and I feel like it needs more shops in it! Kind of disappointing. I visited years ago, and there was so much going on in there and so many shop...  more »
  • This was our first time here in this old factory turned shopping area. It is a very interesting place with shops and restaurants. Very nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon.  more »

  • A more unique shopping experience in the old factory. Good selection of shops and a couple of restaurant choices. The food standouts ate Five Daughters Bakery and Jeni's Ice Cream. A good antiques store and many hand crafted items. Full family fun at the pottery store. Good parking and Saturdays host the Franklin Farmer's Market and other seasonal festivals. Also has a good butcher and fishmonger.
  • It is amazing what they have done with this old factory. They got an interesting shopping and leisure concept with lots of artisan and locally produced food, products and entertainment for the whole family. Easy access to Hwy 65 and a large parking area with a little bit of everything to suit even the pickiest of shopper.
  • Love the Factory and the Farmers Market (every Saturday morning). It gets very busy and parking is a challenge then. The Factory is full of interesting and fun shops and studios. A nice place to walk around, especially when the weather isn't great.
  • A great place to visit for visitors and locals alike. Many small businesses and local food options. The farmers market on Saturday is a fun way to start the weekend. Five Daughter's Bakery and Franklin Juice Company are sure picks for me.
  • Most unique mall I've ever been to. I wished I had more time to explore every building. The few I was able to was outstanding. I most definitely will make a trip to return to check out the rest.

Where to stay in Franklin

With its brick buildings and small-town charm, the downtown area remains Franklin's biggest draw, but accommodation options here are limited to just a couple inns and bed and breakfasts. You will, however, find many national-chain hotels in the commercial district around where Murfreesboro Road meets Interstate 65. As an alternative, consider staying on a working farm just outside the town center for a more rustic experience.
