Östermalmstorg is a square in the district of Östermalm, Stockholm. It is known for its food market hall, Östermalmshallen, opened in 1889. Östermalmstorg was also the location of the first Åhléns City department store, opened in 1932.

By the square stands the controversial statue of The Meeting (Swedish: "Mötet"), showing a naked male figure bearing a piece of meat on his shoulders before a recumbent female figure, created by the artist Willy Gordon.
