HORRID Management
Apr 2020
I never (ever) write reviews, but I had to for this store. Although the employees and shops inside The Southern Market are great, the management is SO rude and unprofessional. The owner is not a nice person at all, it is a shame she runs this market! The owner believes she is better than everyone, and CLEARLY shows it if you ever meet her. This place needs new management, terribly.

Good afternoon. We are deeply concerned about your review. We had a phone call this week from a lady in Mississippi who had purchased something from a store in that region unrelated to our marketplace. She was looking to speak to the management. We explained that we are in Tennessee with only one store in Knoxville, TN. Is your review related to that phone call and corresponding purchase in the Mississippi area? I’m afraid you have us confused with another business. Feel free to call our office so we may clarify. 865-588-2260

Ever Changing Shopping Experience
Jun 2019 • Friends
Love to shop for gifts in this store. Merchandise is always changing and it is fun place to search for a gift. It is composed of several rooms (and I assume some of the spaces are rented out) so there is a varied feel as you go. Very classy. They do have their own private parking.

A unique shopping experience
Feb 2019 • Solo
I really like the set up and the variety. It is not a typical store, not a mall, and not a run-of-the-mill arrangement. You actually feel like you are in a different store with each booth and there are a lot of unusual and tasteful items.

Perfect

If you're looking for home accessories, THIS is the place to find them. I have looked for a bazaar such as this forever! Too bad it's not in my current city.
There are several vendors selling upscale goods, all under one roof. Don't think flea market; it's more like a gift/accessory store mall grouping. Very accessible, easy flowing and classy. No junk here. Beautiful art, paintings, monogrammed items, florals...you name it. I'll definitely be back!

Thoroughly enjoyed this shopping experience! Staff were all helpful and friendly. There are different vendors throughout. Some are filled with unique items, some are homemade..just a really fun place to shop!

A Local Secret of a Go To Gift Spot
Sep 2016 • Solo
Multiple shops within a shop and a place where you meander through to find a gift for someone (or yourself). I have also seen artwork here as well. A little off the beaten path of Kingston Pike in Bearden area. It does have it's own parking.

A charming and classy shopping experience

I cannot believe no one has reviewed this place yet! It's a dream-come-true for someone who likes to take the time to look around at everything, both inside and out. I enjoy all of the little shops, the décor, the variety of items offered, the outdoor section, and simply the way the whole place is merchandised, which beckons you in and encourages you to experience all of the goods for sale here.
