Wonderful revitalization of this downtown area! Many eclectic places to eat and shops to browse through. Love to sit in the square and take in the sights and sounds .. especially people with their dogs. Festivals often...Also, check out the farmers market, if you are there when it is open.

Market Square is a must see for anyone visiting Knoxville. The city does a good job of making sure something is happening on the square every month of the year. There are great little shops, restaurants and cafes lining and just off the square. Tupelo Honey, Cafe 4, Coffee & Chocolate are perfect stops for a nice meal, people watching... More

It covers several city blocks and includes outstanding food trucks, farm to table booths, and handmade craft/jewelry shopping. Market Square is also a great destination any other day of the week. It has several excellent... More

Market Square is what I loved about Knoxville -- it's fun & quirky. Cool little restaurants & bars, fun shops, and an open plaza for people to play instruments, dance, have their dogs meet. Loved the t-shirt shops! Worth a stroll -- it's not big, but it's super cute.
