Nice park in the middle of Knoxville that I didn't know existed till I walked past it on my back to the Holiday Inn - Worlds Fair - from the Downtown Bar & Grill.

The girls from my tennis team and I were in Knoxville for a USTA tournament. We knew Market Square was a must-do. It was the night before our last match and we were all pretty tired from a hectic weekend, but of course we found the energy to shop and eat. I think we spent the majority of our time... More

Some of the best restaurants in Knoxville (Tupelo Honey, Tomato Head, Café 4) and a great venue to sit and read/hang out with family and friends when the whether is nice. It can be really crowded. There's free parking on Walnut on nights and weekends.

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

Market square has several great restaurants for many different pallets. There are also some great shops to walk in and a nice park to take a stroll through... More

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.
