Just got back from a quick trip to the square. This is a nice area to wash around and maybe visit a shop or two. I expected more shopping opportunities, but really just found a handful of overpriced shops. Lots of restaurants though, had a nice dinner at stock and barrel. The square is nice and clean with lots of... More

Market Square is a beautiful pedestrian area accented by 12 or more restaurants, small shops, and local culture. Be sure to stop by Saturday mornings until 12pm for the local farmers' market! Some of the best restaurants are located in the square, so I would advise anyone who makes a trip to Knoxville stop by and see it! There is... More

Market Square has several cute shops and restaurants. They usually have a farmer's market on Saturday mornings with local merchants, produce and meats. In the winter, there is an ice rink in the middle of the square. Nice area to just wander around one afternoon.

It's just a shopping area, with a number of restaurants. The good is overcome by all the homeless people roaming around, begging and sitting outside the window of your restaurant watching you eat. Yes, I feel for them, but there are SO many places than van help them get back on their feet, and the Market Square is NOT one... More

I'm giving 4 starts because I came here for the first time in 2006 and it's amazing the difference. Knoxville is finally getting a heart!

Great restaurant choices and great ambiance! There are a few shops and a number of good restaurant choices. We tried The Blue Coast and it was very tasty. We had super service there.

We went to Market Square to get something to eat. After finding out there would be up to a 2 hour wait at most of the eating places we went to Subway. We were walking toward a group of 3 people. My wife and a young lady in the other group had the same thing in mind, to go around... More

The pedestrian square has a selection of restaurants lining both sides and is pleasant for outdoor strolling.

If you are searching for a true Knoxville experience go to Market Square. Nine sure to visit the unique shops full of vintage stuff and unique retail items. There are also shops which feature local artists if you are looking to add some original art to your home.
