Matching Green is a village which forms part of the civil parish of Matching, in the County of Essex, England. It is located 3.0 miles (4.8 km) east of Harlow, 4.5 miles (7.2 km) north west of Chipping Ongar and 3.9 miles (6.3 km) south east of Sawbridgeworth.

The village has one of the largest village greens in Essex. Its almost triangular shape extends to 5.6 hectares (13.8 acres) and is lined along each edge by a variety of (mainly) detached cottages and houses ranging in age from the 14th to the 19th century, twenty-eight of which are listed buildings. Since there are relatively few trees, the buildings are important in defining the shape and size of the green.

The site of the former RAF Matching lies to the east of village.
