Your eye doesn't know where to look first. So much going on in this area. The place lights up at night with so much character. Art sculptures, boho chic style shops like Earthbound trading Co., Earth to Old City. A variety of interesting indoor/outdoor cafes with white lights strung everywhere. There are park benches throughout the area and some people... More

This was my second time to the Market. Went there a couple of years ago and enjoyed it so much that we went back again. We arrived on Saturday morning at 9:30. There were many vendors offering baked goods, vegetables, jewelry, home-made soaps, coffee, candy and much more. There were several street performers, kids playing in the water fountains and...

Market Square, Gay St. and Art in Public Places all meld together in this wonderful example of a revitalized downtown area. A nice mix of restaurants with outdoor seating options, fun shops, a historic movie theater, street performers, greenscapes, splash pad, and plenty of outdoor events/activities. Nice to see a well maintained (and utilized) area for young and old alike.... More

We had never been to Knoxville before and were pleasantly surprised with all it had to offer. Market square comes alive at night with street performers, Shakespeare on stage, nightlife and every kind of food you can want there. Everyone was sos friendly too.

This lovely market square offers tons of shops and restaurants and is a must go when in Knoxville, you almost will have to go to find a dish for everyone. I compare it to an outdoor food court

The area known as the Market Square is a patch of green with restaurants and boutiques lining it on either side. There’s also a park across the way. It’s just a charming area to sit, relax and people watch. We were there on a Sunday morning and didn’t expect it to be as active as it was. A lot of... More

Needs cleaner higher class restaurants. Nice to visit on a Friday night. The bars have good bands and the roof top seating is nice.

Great bars, restaurants and shopping in one little downtown square. You can by veggies and crafts on the weekends. Hear a variety of music and see public art. Market Square is a local favorite and a perfect place for visitors to get a taste of Knoxville hospitality.
