This is a must-stop place when you are in Knoxville. It is located in the center of the town. Walking area. A stage for concerts. We were lucky there was a street market when we were there. Many historical places/buildings around the area.

Market square is a Wonderful place for the whole family no matter what event is happening. I love the farmers market on Saturday. I have spent many st Patrick's day celebrations watching the cutthroat shamrock show there. Great shops and restaurants there too.

Over the past many years, new life has come to downtown Knoxville's Market Square. Concerts, shops, mucho restaurants and a fine farm market in the growing season.

Market Square is always busy with entertainment! Live shows, movies, restaurants with outdoor seating. Lots of little unique shops to visit. It's in the hub of surrounding streets filled with more restaurants, theatre and shopping.

Nice quaint shopping/eating establishments. Close walk from our hotel maybe 5-7 minutes. Will go again when we come back.

Its a unique, colourful place to walk around, do some window shopping, or even get enticed to shop for real! Lovely cafes, bars and bistros on Market Square. Gay Street is also a happening stretch, just off the Square. Don't forget to walk through the narrow alleys behind the cafes and restaurants to see the very colourful and artistic graffiti!

Wonderful restaurants, bars, and shops. (Make sure to stop in Mast General Store.) Visited in January and there was an ice skating rink in the center. Also saw a small Star Wars parade which was fun.

No matter what time of day you are likely to experience the locals utilizing market square! From the variety of local-owned restaurants featuring unique cuisines with other tasty offerings such as local craft beers. This is no tourist trap. It is the real deal. Unique shops to boot as well as a few street musicians that might be scattered wit... More
