NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The sweet taste of Paris is coming to Nashville when Sally Lane’s Homemade Candies puts its mints, barks, bites, fudge, peanut brittle and other seasonal gift assortments up for sale at the Fairgrounds’ Christmas Village.
The family-owned sweetness will be at Booth 56 in Building No. 6 at the Nashville Fairgrounds from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 16, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 17.
The Rockwell and Freeman families, owners of the establishment, love delivering goodies and have been in business since 1958. The sweet tasty treats are made at the candy farm at 2215 Gum Springs Road and sold at their retail candy store located at 3335 Highway 79 North in Paris.
“It started here in 1958 at this very counter,” said Shelby Freeman, a store owner, at the candy house Nov. 2. “So we’re a family business.”
Freeman said the candy farm makes everything sold at the store except for the Jelly Bellies and Saltwater Taffy and the suckers.
