Market Square - Review

The Market Square is a pedestrian shopping mall where you can shop for everything from art, clothes, accessories to jewelry. Dating back to the 19th century, today the place offers a rather quaint complex with beautifully lit pathways adorned with street musicians and artists.

Many political events have taken place at the square and the place is called ‘the most democratic place on earth’ where people from all strata come together peacefully.

Market Square, Knoxville Reviews

  • Loved getting lunch in market square it was nice to see a part of Knoxville. We walked around a bit and saw the art and the people. It is definitely somewhere you wanna stop when you're visiting. They have some great shops in this area for shopping.

  • Lots of things going on here. You can find just about any kind of entertainment that you can think of from street performers to plays in the middle of the square. There are also different types of restaurants to choose from also plenty of pubs that you can enjoy. Also you can find a couple of theaters such as the Tennessee theater or the Bijou theater both host a variety of musical venues.

  • Market Square in Knoxville is one of the most enjoyable and entertaining urban spaces anywhere. A classic public square - kind of unusual for a mid sized city like this - lined with modern mid- to upscale restaurants, shops, and nightclubs and an event stage featuring free entertainment seasonally. Frequent public special events. Check local listings for upcoming events.

  • Market Square is one of the coolest things about Knoxville. There's almost always something interesting and fun happening. On weekends they have the farmers market where you can buy a plethora of different things like home made soaps, local produce, and arts and crafts. The restaurants are almost all unique to Knoxville and can't be found anywhere else. It's a great place to take your kids and/or dogs. Highly recommend coming here at any given time.

  • I love the diversity here. Street performers are great and unique. Your surrounded by art. Food choices are amazing. I only wish graffiti alley was cleaner. There is alot of talent here.
