Create an itinerary including Market Square
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.

  • Wonderful historic square very easy to walk though. Plenty of benches to rest and plenty of great restaurants and some shops in the area.

  • My husband and I enjoyed Market Square because of the wide range of little shops to just pop in and look. The employees were friendly. The downside of market square was homeless people were allowed...
