We spent a couple of hours in Market Square, shopping, drinking and then having dinner (at Cafe 4). It's in a trendy area of Knoxville, and the establishments in Market Square are representative of that cool factor. It's worth a visit.

Market is a great place to go this time of year you can sit outside and eat or drink at one of the many restaraunts and bars. Rooftop bars are available but I thought th were over priced. Food is great you have to try Emilia Italian middle of the block it is incredible

A great variety of shops to browse through as well as many restaurants to experience. A nice stroll takes you along a very open paved walkway with a park like atmosphere.

Market Square is the kind of place you could spend all day, all weekend in. The restaurant choices are fabulous and the FREE activities that are always going on down there on the weekends is never ending. Bring your kids! Bring your dogs! Several restaurants have dog friendly patios. I love Market Square; the Farmer's Market, Shakespeare in the Square,... More

Multiple entertainers set up along the mall - some better than others but all entertaining. You've likely heard of someone playing a saw but you might see it here. Magic tricks, country... More
