65 degrees and sunny in Feb, definitely called for a stroll down Market square. A group was playing blues music and passing out pamphlets. Further down another group was playing Bob Dylan's songs.

Right downtown and surrounded by some of the best food Knoxville has to offer. Some green space to enjoy outdoors time in too.

We enjoy visiting Market Square on Saturdays for the Farmers Market. There are many local vendors selling produce, meats, plants, crafts, etc. There is also a holiday market on Saturdays in late November and December.

Took my grandson, who is a college student, to the Market Square to eat. The place we really wanted to eat had a two hour wait, so we went to another place, but they had very good hamburgers.

Market Square is my favourite part of the city. It's always a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere no matter what you're dressed for. Great place to get some fresh air, take a walk, people watch or just hang out with friends.

Market Square is made up of numerous shops and restaurants. Both indoor and outdoor dining. Be careful you don't go in a restaurant that tries to price it's menu more upscale than it's worth. All and all very decent places to eat for a family, a couple or just all by yourself.

A friend and I went out for dinner and decided to check out the Square afterwards. The weather was pleasant and we enjoyed checking out all of the shops. Sat on a park bench and enjoyed a nice conversation. Highly recommend this Square.
