I drive in from Southern Kentucky to Knoxville often, bringing friends and family who are newcomers to the Market Square Farmers Market and downtown Knoxville. All have a enjoyed themselves and are impressed with what Knoxville has going on in their downtown. Having lived in downtown Chicago for many years, I am also extremely impressed with downtown Knoxville, the Market Square Farmers Market, and what Knoxville is doing for the local farmers, crafters, and local culture. I have a friend flying in from Tampa next weekend, and I will be bringing her to the Market Square Farmers Market as well. Great job Knoxville!
