Neat city

Market Square has so many restaurants to pick from I wish I had time to try them all! Cafe 4 is my favorite. There is some really cool artwork throughout the city too.

Being a Knoxville native, I will always have a love for my home. There is a lot to do, see & so much history all over the city & county.

Market Square is THE place to go in downtown Knoxville. It is home to a dozen restaurants of various menus and prices, several pubs and sports bars, boutiques and gift shops, and even the cosy Hotel Oliver. During the warmer months it also is home to a very popular Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. And it's just a short... More

It was quite the experience. I had only experienced this via television. It was even better in person. The shops were quaint and fun. I bought a t-shirt for my husband, which I felt was a bargain at $20. I can't wait to go back and spend more time (and money!).

We really liked the Market Square area. It has several quality, small quaint shops. It also has several interesting restaurants with usual and unusual food items at fair prices. We say several college age young people at the restaurants.

We are always delighted with the Square. It is jammed full of restaurants, mostly local. Wonderful food, handicrafts. All are made in America, there is nothing there made in China. We always take our visitors there.

Market Square is located in the downtown area of Knoxville. There are wonderful shops and restaurants dotted along the square. In the spring evenings there are free concerts. The square is a nice place to spend some time with a date or the family. It is a great use of space in an urban area. Market Square is a nice... More

This is my favorite location in Knoxville. There are more restaurants and clubs here than any other single place in town. Fun and food and something going on every weekend.
