My family and I arrived at the Factory around 4:15 PM on a weekday to look around. We expected the place to be bustling with creative shops and restaurants but it was completely dead. The Music City doghouse was closed for the day and it seemed like Saffire was the only restaurant open but their prices were astronomical for the... More

The factory's architecture was amazing, such an eclectic blend of textures. The restaurants were great and the shops combined with a great experience. Watching artists work was also a great touch to this establishment.

An old stove factory turned into a shopping mall. Nice little shops - antiques, kids' clothes, pottery shop, guitar shop, art galleries, rug shop, furniture, and many gift shops. The Stoveworks restaurant is not very good but Saffire is usually a good bet. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

I liked the fact that it was an old factory so not just tile and glass. Could use more budget type shops and also more food places.

Great assortment of little shops and boutiques. I believe they even have event space. Would recommend visiting if you're in the area.

As other reviews stated, not a lot of shops in the Factory itself (but a large very nice antique shop with huge, beautiful selection). The real draw seemed to be the Farmer's Market located in the parking lot behind the Factory. Many vendors and lots of fresh options, including gluten-free baked goods. Make note that if you want to shop... More

Great place to browse for antiques and collectables. Lots of places to eat too! We spent quite a long time looking and enjoying the shoppes.

Walked through and found the old factory building to be interesting. However, several niche shops with higher prices. Worth a visit but not many stores of interest for actual shopping. We heard it was a good place to host large events.

Franklin is about 19 mikes south of Downtown Nashville and it is worth the drive to walk the small historic town. Just about a mile North of Franklin sits the Factory. It was a factory and now has local little shops that the women would like better than the men. It also has a local theatre that used for local... More
