Hello friends… it’s your native Nashvillian coming back with an all new installment of where to shop in Music City!! This time, I’m giving you an insider’s view at this former industrical hosiery mill/shoe factory warehouse turned indoor shopping + dining village. It’s been a favorite of mine since it opened its doors back in 2019 and you’re about to fall in love with this unique destination named L&L Market.
There is SO much to love about L&L Market — the building’s long history makes it an oasis for families and visitors to enjoy food, fun, retail therapy and of course all the southern hospitality Nashville has to offer. Here are a sampling of the eateries, shops and destinations not to miss during your next visit:

Amelia’s Flowers | It’s always a good time for fresh flowers and that’s why this is the perfect location for my favorite flower stop Amelia’s. Their flower truck is a staple in Nashville and so it was only fitting for them to open a permanent fixture in the L&L Market. They have SO many gorgeous fresh blooms for you to make your own bouquet or have them fix one up for you.
