Find Some Extra Time


Gain back precious time with the ease of working Downtown. Convenience to essentials and shopping is second to none. You can take care of many daily errands while also getting in a few extra steps – no car required.


Health & Wellness.


When you need your teeth cleaned or you're looking for a whiter smile, Ethan Long DDS is right on Gay Street. Doctor Jane Health & Wellness is in the Old City and offers a holistic approach to health and wellness. And if you're in need of prescriptions or over-the-counter products, the Phoenix Pharmacy has you covered with a full-service pharmacy on Gay Street (sweet benefits too).




With eight banks and credit unions across Downtown, you can take care of your financial needs anytime of the day.




There are several gyms throughout the Downtown district, including a YMCA, so you can easily squeeze in a workout before or after work. Personal trainers, weekly yoga classes, running partners, and more, await at these fitness studios. Eddie's Health Shoppe is also around the corner from Market Square to assist in your training and recovery.


Food & Drink.


Downtown's markets have you covered if you need basic items, gourmet treats, or a bottle of wine before going home. The Local Market is a full-service convenience store with a range of everyday items including deli, dairy, produce, snacks, soft drinks, beer, toiletries, pantry goods, and more. On Wednesdays, a trip to the Market Square Farmers' Market can provide you with a bounty of fresh vegetables and fruits. And dinner isn't complete without Tree & Vine's olive oils, balsamics, imported pastas, olives, salsas, sauces, and gourmet crackers.


For wine and beer, swing by Corks, Curious Dog, Downtown Wine + Spirits, Knox Brew Hub, or Merchants of Beer.


Post Office & Courthouse.


Need to update your passport or renew your license? With a courthouse Downtown, those tasks are a little easier. Plus, you'll find early voting a breeze at the Knoxville City-County Building. There's also a post office on Main Street for all your shipping and mailing needs. And a public library!


Hair & Beauty.
