Market Street Metrolink station is a tram stop in the City Zone of Greater Manchester's Metrolink light rail system. It is located on Market Street, in Manchester city centre, England. It opened on 27 April 1992 as part of Phase 1 of Metrolink's expansion.

Originally the stop in Market Street handled trams to Bury Interchange only, with High Street Metrolink station handling trams from Bury only. When Market Street was pedestrianised, High Street stop was closed, and Market Street was reconfigured to handle trams in both directions. This stop opened on 10 August 1998.
