Market Square, Knoxville

4.6
Located in the center of downtown, Market Square is the bull’s-eye of the city in every sense. Founded as the regional farmers' market in the 19th century, the square was a common ground where locals and visitors from all walks of life congregated. After a period of decline, the area was revitalized, and today it’s a bustling pedestrian mall, dotted with restaurants, bars, and shops. Try some of the local or international cuisine, see a concert or street performance, and admire the works of resident artists and craftspeople.The historic square is also the perfect place to stroll with your pet or sit and people-watch.
