Great shops, parks for walking, and delicious restaurants, some with open air seating. Seasonal activities - ice skating, festivals, concerts.

Such a pleasant surprise! We loved the atmosphere, food, and shops! When at the Market Square, there was a great side-walk chalk art show going on. Fantastic!

Market Square is wonderful and is versatile. It is truly the only place I have been to that literally has something for everyone in your family.

The area is small but real cute. Several cool cafés and restaurants around. I'm sure it's even cooler in the evening. Worth a stop if you are around.

Market square is the foundation to many great restaurants, events, festivals or just taking an evening walk. It has the feel of a park in the middle of a growing urban area. Spring to fall there is always something going on. Most events can be found online.

A great area to shop and eat. Lots of unique shops and an interesting place to people watch. Close to other downtown attractions.

It was raining but we ventured out to Market Square. There are some really neat shops and restaurants there. We went into the olive oil shop and sampled so many different olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Some really neat artisan shops. A nut shop. We couldn't see it all because of the weather but we will be back.

This is a great place, where the elite and casual meet in sandals. Often has free entertainment, concerts and art shows and foodie events

It's a nice little area but when there is something going on down there is it a horrible crowded mess...things are crammed in so badly into such a small space that it is no fun to be there especially in the heat and humidity of Knoxville...it's like an oven! Most of the restaurants down there are over rated and over... More

evolved from a true farmer's market from the 20's and 30's, Market Square today offers a mixture of adventure for the visitor…Fridays and Saturdays bring the best open- air farmers and craft market in the area..combined with periodic concerts, outdoor cafes and restaurants, walking tours, proximity to the Historical Museum and downtown theaters….. guarantee a true family venue for all...
