MARKET SQUARE FARMERS MARKET
Stretching through the heart of Market Square, Krutch Park, and down to Clinch Avenue, vendors from within a 150-mile radius come to shake hands with friends, parley with the community, and exchange products. Produce varies by season and includes coffee, pastries, vegetables, herbs, eggs, meat, dairy, fruits, honey, canned goods, plants, baked goods and meals from local food trucks. Browse the natural grocery store, take in the billowing smells and enjoy a slow morning.
MAPLE HALL BOWLING ALLEY
The historic J.C. Penny Building on Gay St. is home to downtown’s boutique 11-lane bowling alley. Fancy yourself relaxing in the cozy lounge with a drink from the full-service bar and a small plate to complement. Revel in a spirited bowling affair, plan a VIP gathering or dote on the family at Maple Hall Bowling Alley.
THE PUBLIC HOUSE
The rugged elegance of this downtown hole-in-wall is a local favorite. Located on an up and coming block of the Old City, Public House’s experimental cocktail menu, twinkle-light clad patio, and intimate interior radiates a “good-times” vibe. With no TVs, live music, or indoor smoking, the aura of connection and conversation flows freely. Crunch on the truffle popcorn and share a charcuterie board with your neighbor over a choice glass of your favorite wine, beer or cocktail.
