This area really comes to life at night, with all the busy bars and restaurants. If you visit, take a moment to appreciate the women's suffrage monument honoring some local women leaders, and also step across the street to enjoy the fountains and sculpture in the adjoining park.

We go to market Square sometimes just to get out. There's usually always something going on and always something to try/buy at the farmer's market. We have two small children and can always keep them entertained at playing in the water or listening to love music.

Market square is an eclectic gathering of local restaurants, shops, artisans, and musicians. Many local events offer free outdoor movies, a great farmers market, many musical/ethnic festivals. There's much to see and do! Go! It's fun

Market square is awesome! So many good places to eat, shop and drink. When you visit check out this place for sure, but don't go to Downtown Bar and Grill on Gay Street, it is TERRIBLE!
