How to Spend a Day in the District: June Edition

With summer approaching, it can be tempting to spend your free time baking in the sun by the pool, but with so much to see and do in Knoxville it shouldn’t be difficult to convince your friends and family to get off the Adirondack chair and explore The District in Bearden. We’ve even mapped out the perfect outing for you.

Begin your day with a trip to Gourmet’s Market and Cosmos Café for a spectacular brunch. Arrive early to avoid the crowd or explore the Market’s wide variety of specialty olive oils, artisan jams and fine coffees and teas. Don’t forget to try the VOL omelet while your there…the ingredients may surprise you, but we promise it’s delicious!

Next, head over to G&G Interiors to browse their large selection of eclectic home furnishings. From rustic coffee tables to quirky throw pillows, you are guaranteed to find the perfect new addition to your home. Bonus: If you stop by between June 11-14, you’ll catch their spectacular summer tent sale.

End your day by tapping into your artistic side at Bennett Galleries. During the month of June, Bennett has given over their entire gallery to the work of Richard Jolley, alongside never before seen pieces by his wife, Tommie Rush. As one of the world’s largest glass exhibits, Richard Jolley’s “Retrospective” is definitely a must-see before it returns to the vault on June 28.
