Busking & Musical Performances


Nourish Knoxville does not currently book musical performances. Instead, musicians are welcome to perform or “busk” in one of our designated zones on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information about busking, see below.


Family-friendly, acoustic musicians can perform or “busk” for tips during the Market in one of our designated busking zones, noted on the map below with a gray guitar icon. These busking zones are filled on a first come, first served basis and are only available during market hours:

Wednesdays (May 4 – November 16, 2022): 10 am – 1 pm
Saturdays (May 7 – November 19, 2022): 9 am – 1 pm
Saturdays (*December 3, 2022 – March 25, 2023): 10 am – 2 pm

*** Busking within the Market footprint is not permitted during setup and breakdown hours (1.5 hours before market and 1.5 hours after market). ***

No amplification is allowed and Nourish Knoxville reserves the right to dismiss any busker who is causing a nuisance, obstructing pedestrian and/or vehicle traffic, or has an excessively loud performance.

At no time may any performer/busker or non-Nourish Knoxville approved Vendor set up to perform or sell within the Market footprint or in the designated Vendor spaces.

Performers/buskers may not sell their recorded music in busking zones. They must instead apply to Become a Vendor.

For more information or if you have any questions, please reach out to our market staff at
