Love market square. The vegetables were still beautiful even this month. The ice skating rink is a fun addition! Parking is very tough. Good luck finding a place anywhere including the garage.

We live in Knoxville and love going to Market Square, especially in the evenings. It's like a totally different city than in the suburbs (in a good way). Love to just walk and people-watch and eat at one of the several really good restaurants.
