The energy at Market Square was refreshing. There are many restaurants and shops along the Square. During the summer there is a concert each Tuesday and Thursday night...for free! Tuesdays are jazz and Thursdays are a variety.

You can find a lot of local restaurants and shops that are special to just Knoxville. Most days/evenings, there's something happening from an ice rink in the winter or a farmers market in the summer.

This area reminds me of a gourmet food court many selections of interesting foods that makes it difficult to choose where to eat. There are several boutique type shops and a few water features. It is well worth the stop just to people watch as the college students and tourists intermingle there

The square is beautiful and offers events all year around. There is great dinning and shopping. Unique and classy shops. Because of the variety you can have a night out with friends or a day with the family.

We were in town for the weekend and our hotel staff suggested we make a stop at Market Square before we left town and I'm so glad we took that advice. The farmer's market vendors were set up, musicians were playing and good food was cooking in the restaurants all around us. Enjoyed perusing all the local artisan booths and... More

The farmers market has lots of local vendors selling everything from local cheeses, grass fed meats, vegetables, honey to local crafts. We spent a great morning shopping and talking to people.

Great area for a casual walk and window shopping! Make sure to stop in at the cute stores like Bliss and others! Great restaurant selection too!! We enjoyed an unusually cool morning and it also was the morning of the Farmer's Market so made for a win-win! Awesome variety of vendors and they all went out of their way to... More
