Market Lavington is a civil parish and large village with a population of about 2,200 on the northern edge of Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England, 5 miles (8.0 km) south of the market town of Devizes. The parish includes the hamlets of Lavington Sands and Fiddington Sands.
The parish falls in 'The Lavingtons and Erlestoke' electoral ward. This ward starts in the south at West Lavington and stretches north to Worton. The total population of the parish taken at the 2011 census was 5,857.
The Old House, a 14th-century manor house, is also Grade I listed.
The village has two schools, as well as a pre-school group.
- St. Barnabas's primary school

The village is less than two miles from Dauntsey's School, in nearby West Lavington.
The Stert and Westbury Railway, part of the route from London to Taunton, was built through the parish by the Great Western Railway in 1900. At the same time a station named Lavington was built a short distance outside Market Lavington parish, north of Littleton Panell where the line crosses the A360. It was closed in 1967 and no local stations remain; the nearest stations are Pewsey and Westbury.
