I expected it to be like Savannah, or NC their shopping squares are filled with tiny shops and restaurants. This was just restaurants with over an hour wait. I really wouldn't make the trip here again.

Park on street or parking garage and walk about a block to enjoy the beautiful historic "Market Square" in downtown Knoxville. All buildings have been renovated and repurposed into a variety of modern shops and eateries. Live outdoor weekend entertainment.

Eat at Cafe 4, the planters were wonderful, some historical statuary, broad open space for events. No roaming entertainment on Thursday late afternoon. The arts park walk was ok, from there we walked to the riverfront, would have liked to spend more time there.

We enjoyed stopping in while the farmer's market was going. The area was very busy and had a fun, festive atmosphere. It's surrounded by mostly restaurants and some shops. The parking garage next door is free on weekends, so that was a really nice perk.

I lived in Knoxville 20 years ago and at the time marketsquare was all but dead. It has become more lively again, as has Gay street, but it still has relatively little to offer other than restaurants and a shop or two.

Can't wait to visit again! Lots of shops and restaurants and outdoor entertainment. Nice breeze through the square if you want to sit and people watch!
