Was full of good dining places and a few gift and novelty shops.

Was hoping for some unique shops, Only had a few. But it was nice for an afternoon walk and something different to do.

Lovely little square with lots of restaurants. Clean and right across from it is a lovely little park. Unfortunately it was raining so we didn't eat there but got out for photos in both places.

I love the Farmer's Market and enjoy the other events they hold. Could use public restrooms but I think they are working towards that.

I was rather disappointed with this area. It is mostly restaurants and tourist shops with questionable value. The other block contains a delightful art park with wonderful child-friendly art and a water feature. We were approached more than once by people asking for money.

Great place for people watching .restaurants in the Square are mostly pubs with pub food . Good selection of beers and cocktails. A lot of outside eating and Seating. Springtime is a great time for this you can actually get a table outside. One street over( Gay street) had restaurants and shops also.

We visited here in March on a cold rainy evening. Not exactly the best conditions but we really enjoyed walking around the square. The shops are so nice - although the seem to close up pretty early. There are quite a few choices to eat as well. I am sure in wonderful weather it is an absolute delight!

Always a fun location. Bars and restaurants are great with many street performers. It is a destination for singles, couples and families. There is something for everyone. Several quaint shops that are well worth visiting.

Market Square is the place to be! Several wonderful restaurants and local shops. Best people and dog-watching place in Knoxville. Don't miss these restaurants: Tomato Head, Tupelo Honey, Not Watson's, Cafe 4, Rita's Custard, and Blue Coast Burrito. In spring, summer and fall, there are usually things going on in the square - concerts, art shows, Farmer's Market on Saturdays,... More
