Market Square, Knoxville Reviews

  • Market square is the best that downtown (and arguable all of) Knoxville has to offer. There are a lot of nice shops, good food, and entertainment. Right now there is a big ice skating rink set up in the middle, which is always a lot of fun. There are farmers markets on Wednesday and Saturdays during certain months and holiday craft markets through December on Saturdays. You can also catch some really good street performers around here.

  • Market Square is not only a modern, open air shopping center and event area, but it also represents the heart and history of Knoxville. It has been written about in modern travel and business journals as well as American literature, including James Agee. It was purported in his novel as an egalitarian place where everyone could come shop at the old Market building (no longer standing). It has kept and enhanced that spirit today with events like Movies on Market Square, multiple festivals, Shakespeare on the Square and the open air ice skating rink that runs late November to early January (as well as countless other events). Buskers add a lively flourish to each day's visit.

  • Pleasant city square with some nice restaurants and shops. They also have a nice farmer's market here. This and Gay Street are some of the nicest public places in downtown Knoxville. This area also has an interesting history in the city. It was first used as a market place for the city, but now serves as a public square with places to eat and shop.

  • Thought the ice rink would still be open, which it wasn't so we were bummed. However we visited some cute boutiques and had we not just eaten, there were lots of good looking dining options as well! It is also great for a date night stroll with ambient lighting everywhere.

  • It's always fun to visit market square! I highly recommend renting a night or weekend in one of the lofts above the shops/restaurants. They're beautiful! There is so much to do and new events listed frequently. Market square is one of my favorite places in Knoxville, for sure!
