Nolensville Market Square will be a central location where town folk can work, shop, relax, play and live. It’s designed to be a place for gathering with friends and strolling the streets in a pedestrian-friendly, artfully-crafted, community-conscious, multi-faceted development that honors the traditions of Nolensville.
We’ve had an incredible amount of interest in the retail opportunities that will be available, including several restaurant concepts: Pub, Seafood, Steak & Grill, Café, Sushi, Italian. Currently, our plans allow for up to five restaurant operations.
It’s also in our plans to create a space and blend of retail that folks will want to visit repeatedly; to see what’s new and shop in Nolensville, instead of exporting our dollars to surrounding communities. We have serious lease interest, subject to final plan approvals, from a Unique Furniture Store, Art & Photo Gallery, Upscale Home Goods Store, and an Upscale Salon. We are also looking at a Specialty Stores, Men’s Clothing Store, Women’s Clothing Store, Candy & Ice Cream Shop, Antique Store, and a Toy Store. Creating a diversified blend of retail, entertainment and dining that will make it fun to explore and discover with family and friends.

A Puckets Grocery / Restaurant would solve a lot of these problems.
I am considering a move to Nashville area. I’m coming from New Orleans & love the idea of the Market Square. I believe it will only be attractive if it maintains the culture of Nolensville. No national chains, definitely needs live music venue with a couple watering holes / wines bars. Unique restaurants with great food. Family friendly activities and local farmers market would bring a nice bit of culture. Golf carts being allowed would be nice too. Does anyone have an update on when this will be complete & if they have any businesses committed as of now.
We are working on moving the project forward, however will not have anything available for you by next year. Jeff Pate is the developer of this project and also has other opportunities in Nolensville that may fit your needs and timeline. Please contact him here https://jeffpate.com/contact/
Lots of green space and no chain stores. Nolensville is known for its local businesses and restaurants, and I certainly wouldn’t want chains to move in and take over. I would, however, LOVE to have a Trader Joe’s… I think there is a definite need for some sort of grocery, but I do not want something large like a Kroger. I think other local restaurants like Puffy Muffin, Puckett’s, etc would also really thrive in our environment. An ice cream shop would also do great with all the families and children in the area!
Coffee & Tea Shop
Home Decor Store
I would like a different mix other than what is currently available in the Historic Downtown District. We should respect the businesses that are there and helped make Nolensville the place people want to come to. No need for: Clothing stores, Antiques stores or Toy Store. We have all that and more in the Historic District. The small business owners there are local and have worked hard to keep their businesses going before all the growth. It would be unfair to damage their businesses for new growth. Many people do not leave Nolensville to shop for clothes, toys, furniture, home décor, antiques, gifts and more because it is readily available in The Historic Downtown District. Also people come from surrounding areas to visit these shops because of their uniqueness and small town feel.
It will be great for the town to have more available, if traffic is heavily studied and addressed. Nolensville Road has become a traffic jam between the hours of 4 and 6 with only the addition of new residential growth. A new shopping area will greatly increase the traffic problem trying to navigate Nolensville Road.
You can tell majority of these people did not grow up there. Moved there early 90s and that is the quaint Nolensville that I love. I hate coming back now. People are trying to turn it into brentwood area. So sad. All the lush green trees being bulldozed down for the hundreds of houses and stores.
As much as many would like an outdoor music venue many do not live within earshot. For those of us who do, we will have to listen to the concerts even when we don’t necessarily want to. That and the increased traffic are my concerns
Thanks, Delores. This will not be a outdoor music venue, but we do hope to be able to have some community gatherings that may include some live music, however more in line with acoustic music and during the day time hours. Traffic is also one of our concerns and we have plans to contribute improvements to the traffic flow and patterns. Additionally, this project will provide a significant benefit and contribution to the Town budget via Property Taxes, Sales Tax Contributions, etc., that should help provide resources to the Town to help with managing growth and community demands.
Too much of a Lenox Village feel…and seemingly crowded.
Thanks for your feedback. If you look the plans over, along with the retail and building layouts, it is evident that this project is nothing like Lenox Village.
NO big box stores
Why would anyone want a car wash in this
development? A car wash can be placed anyplace along Nolensville Parkway.
What we need is:
A breakfast restaurant
A bar/pub with food
A few nice independent restaurants
Would love a pub like The Pub in Nashville
Newks or some restaurant with good variety of food and healthier options
Video game or Internet cafe
Newks or Jason’s Deli would be awesome!!!
Restaurants and the home goods store sound great!! ?
Fresh Market type grocery. Original. mid line to higher end stores.absolutely no box chain stores.no TJ MAXX, OR STORES OF THAT CALIBER. Those type stores will bring too too much traffic.Quaint and original with alot of green space and outdoor seating is my hope.also another pub/ music venue would be nice.
Very concerned about the traffic this will generate and so much commercial use right at the entrance to our plat. A plat that is increasingly difficult to get out of onto Nolensville Road. A two lane road that is bumper to bumper at certain times of the day. ?
We are too Martha, and plan to address this. We are doing a traffic study and working with the city. We are planning on turn lanes and timed traffic lights, which will improve the flow by allowing traffic to keep moving in the through lane. We also believe the proximity of the project in Town and the walk-ability will help to reduce traffic that is currently driving up and down Nolensville road to leave the area and shop elsewhere.
A hardware store would be nice.
Stay with unique.
We are so close to alot of chain retail already.
I think it would be nice to have a health centered market store, fun kid friendly restaurants, a public place for people to hang with the option of small music
Just came from Savannah. They had a number of interesting shopping areas with unique targeted markets, including pets, teas, candles, honey, outdoors, etc. Not sure if it would work for Nolensville but we had fun shopping there.
Costco would be perfect
I moved to Nolensville a little over a year ago to be close to children/grand children – as so many others have.
The charm of our small community is unique in this area!
Please, no big chain stores, a sensible groc store is a must; no toy store – the one we have is very special; restaurants with outdoor seating; and definitely breakfast!; soace for community concerts etc; bookstore (not big chain).
Please make it local cool businesses or very small chains like Taco Mamacita in Edgehill Village. Please no TJ Maxx or Payless shoes or Old Navy or the like.
Organic focused grocery store
Smothie/juice/sandwich shop – mom and pop type like fix juice co rather than something like jamba
Coffee shop with quality drinks
Healthy options would be so great!
I have an amazing idea for a breakfast spot that I know people would love. Real, fresh food, good ingredients and a smaller but amazing menu. I wish I knew someone with the food instudtry know-how!
Organic focused food store ???
No Toy Store! That only hurts the current one already in Nolensville that is a really cool little shop! Please make the grocery store one that isn’t super expensive for everything!!!! It will be the only one in town. If you truly want a “market square” for the people of Nolensville, choose stores accordingly that don’t cost an arm and leg. If everything is super high end, I for one will likely never go there to shop. A mix of restaurants that includes a couple of “quick service” (Zoe’s Kitchen, a nice sub shop, etc..) a long with a couple of more expensive sit-down options would be great! Ditto on the afore mentioned breakfast place. First watch, puffy muffin, etc…
Oh yeah, a smoothie joint would be great too!
I would suggest a way to draw families with younger kids. A splash pad would be awesome. A kid friendly place like a Monkey Joes or similar would be great. I’m excited to see what comes, and am hoping for come affordable stores in the mix.
YES!! A Monkey Joe’s or or Monkeys Treehouse or something similar would be so perfect!!
Breakfast place for sure
Shoe place like marti and Liz or discount
Groceries for sure
Indoor Gun range!!!
Sprouts- trader joes
Zoe’s- we need some healthy “fast food options
Would love another restaurant similar to Southside that serves brunch and lunch weekends and dinner
Pucketts style restaurant
First watch or mom/pop breakfast joint
Jj wine bar good food/wine selection
Indoor bounce house (monkey treehouse- monkey joes
Chick fil a
Tropical smoothie cafe
Splash pad similar to Jack Daniels park splash pad
Also, a place for live music outside with Permanent food trucks around courtyard like seaside
Stranded lights etc
Love this idea!
Blue Garten in OKC has a super cool venue for food trucks. Very fun atmosphere.
Tim hortons- coffee/donuts
Greek restaurant like kalamatas
Argo tea- it’s so awesome!!!
I could keep going!
Trader Joe’s would be fantastic!
Hardware store, car wash, Trader Joes
Something more realistic for restaurants other than chains, (we can travel 10 miles to any chain, not far). We have plenty of burgers and chicken! No car washes, no box stores! Hopefully a nice “community” green space for gatherings. Something unique to Nolensville charm. An affordable grocer!
Movie theater, breakfast place, a bar/wine bar concept, no more fast food, whole foods would be great, a deli maybe?, target (haha joking!), not another toy shop, coffee shop, those would be great!
FirstWatch Breakfast & Lunch
Trader Joes or Sprouts
Francesca’s Clothing or Blush or boutique like Threads
9 Fruits Smoothies
Great steak, seafood and salad restaurants…like a J. Alexanders that does it all
Love, Peace & Pho type restaurant
Philanthropy or Anthropologie
A great, non chain breakfast restaurant
A bakery or gourmet donut type shop
Nolensville desperately needs a real breakfast joint. It would be nice to have some mom & pop home-style cooking establishments, and to steer away from the chain restaurants that innundate the surrounding communities. No big box stores as they would completely ruin the Nolensville atmosphere. There’s enough of those within a short drive in any direction.
Green grocery store, coffee shop, independent bookstore, and a small town movie theater (similar to Franklin Theatre or Belcourt before renovations) would be awesome!
TJ Maxx. Fresh Market. Hardware
TJ Maxx SUPER store. Fresh Market. Any small hardware store
Whole Foods, Turnip Truck or Sprouts!
I am so excited about this development! We are moving to Nolensville in September and I think it will be a great addition to the already awesome town. I would love to see some retail shops (clothing boutiques, gifts, etc.) that are affordable. I understand wanting “upscale” businesses, but if there is nothing that the average person (and by average in Williamson county I mean the Middle Income people, with both parents working and kids in full time daycare that still have to be on some kind of budget) can afford, it seems that they can’t stay in business for the long haul because most people can’t afford to visit regularly. It sounds like the plan is to try to have a little bit for everyone so I hope it truly rolls out that way, but just thought I’d share my two cents.
Taco Mamacitas, 55 south, or something similar to Grays on Main please! And no big box chain stores.
SAMs sports bar
Ann Taylor loft
Indoor kids play area
I don’t not want another toy shop ( our current store is great), pizza, burgers, fast food chain.
Looking forward to the splash pad.
Movie Theater would be nice!!!!
