Market Square has come a long way. There are plenty of restaurants and shops, even a stage for music and performance. But the best part of Market Square is the park adjacent to it. Krutch Park has a stream running through it and lots of interesting sculptures. There are benches to sit and rest or just people watch.

Lots of shops, bars, and restaurants. They were having their annual Christmas bicycle ride where everyone dresses up their bikes and/or themselves. It was fun to watch, lots of fun costumes and lights.

Ice Skating was wonderful and we loved that we could go shop and come back and forth as we wanted to with the wrist bands! Kids loved it and the guys behind the counter were nice and helpful.

In the summer time they have street performers. You should find an awesome place to eat. There are a bunch of very cool little eateries.

Market square is filled with delicious restaurants, boutiques, and a nightlife. The craft far is a wonderful time filled with artistic items and food from local farmers. This part of Knoxville will make wonderful memories with friends and family!

Market Square is without doubt the most interesting and most vibrant portion of Knoxville. In recent years They have restored this area, and brought many fun events with those renovations. In the past few months. I have watched the free movies on the square, a nice outdoor event, seen a Michael McDonald concert, gone to a fantasy of trees Christmas... More

I stayed at a hotel 4 blocks away and each day/evening walked to Market Square. Lots of delicious restaurants, music venues, ice cream, etc. Saturday morning we walked through a huge farmer's market with a huge variety of items - including a couple of food trucks.
