Great place to roam and meet friends. Many good restaurants for both lunch and dinner. Wednesdays and Saturdays (except Winter months) there is a farmers market where fresh vegetables, breads and crafts are for sale.

Market Street, Knoxville, TN - offers lots of shopping, restaurants and even has events such as plays on the stage. (check event calendar for details.) Nice area to roam, have dinner and see a play or concert.

In the heart of downtown, this is a square lined with restaurants and shops. It is closed to cars and is a wonderful place to visit day or night.

I was there on a Saturday during the farmer's market. It has a charm that only you will find in Knoxville. Students, locals and visitors seem to end up there and there is no wonder. Most of the restaurants use local grown produce and meat. If you have time it is a place to go.

If you're looking to explore the downtown area in Knoxville, TN you can't leave without walking around Market Square. Watch movies in the amphitheater there, listen to live bands play, or use the ice rink set up yearly during the winter months. I lived in Knoxville for four years, and while visiting I'll always pass through market square.

nice quaint shops, restaurants, rita's italian ice, and random street performers are all part of the Market Square Experience. Go on Saturdays for the outdoor market. If you are bored in Knoxville, walking around Market square is always a great thing to do!
