Rocket Fizz is Open at 7 Market Square

A new store, Rocket Fizz, has opened on Market Square, offering retro and international candy, retro and unique soft drinks, toys, posters and more. The franchise was founded in 2007 and opened its first store in 2009. With nearly 100 locations across the country, it lays claim to being the “fastest growing candy franchise in the world.” Locations in Nashville, Chattanooga, and Asheville preceded the Knoxville location.

Pedestrianizing Union Avenue and market street

Specifically the stretch between market square and the park, as well as the stretch of market street right next to the park. It would be fully pedestrianized, just closed off to cars. Supply trucks, vehicles for the farmers market, or food trucks would be allowed by permit. But personal automobiles would not be allowed. Emergency response vehicles the notable exception. Anyway, for the reasoning: Union Avenue and market street pointlessly divide market square and the park, and are generally useless for anything but the exceptions to pedestrianizing anyway.
