Awesome safe area for kids to run around outside the cafes without having to worry about a car speeding by. I always keep my kids close by but the open market area allows them space to move around instead of 5 kids being confined to a sidewalk. Live performances on the main stage throughout the week. Many of the cafes... More

Seems like there are always things going on here, concerts, art fairs, farmers markets, etc. There are many dining opportunities with many that offer patio seating & several that allow dogs on the patio. There is several parking garages nearby. We usually use the Market St one that is on the west side. Usually parking is free after 6 pm... More

We are regulars at Market Square just to walk around enjoying the various street performers, maybe grab dinner or stop in a coffee shop and a couple of stores. This is a weekly enjoyment for us.

Seriously one of the best small town areas in Knoxville. It reminds me a lot of downtown Ft. Worth and they have some of the cutest shops and best restaurants here. Have plenty of time to stroll and around and listen to local performers and shop and eat.

This was one of the highlights of our weekend in Knoxville. What a great place to explore! I only wish I had more time to enjoy more of the crafts, foods, and entertainment in the open air portion, as well as the many, many shops, stores and restaurants outlining Market Square.

It's a cute area. Difficult to park. Area is small. The eateries and shops they do have are nice, it would just be better if this area had more shops. Love that there is a market , it would be better if they had more booths.

You park and walk into Market Square. No car. Lots of different resturants. Local cuisine, fresh and gluten free, bars and micro brewed beer locations, chocolate and coffee shops and unique shopping for that something different. Mast general store is a short walk along with many other locations one street over on Gay Street. Market Square is a location that... More
