American Market (also known as Sitara Market) is a market located in Peshawar, Pakistan. It sells various types of electronic goods and is known for its low prices[according to whom?] while being notorious for giving its visitors the opportunity to purchase firearms and accessories.

According to a local dealer, "the area has come to be known as the American Market because it sells US goods that have either been stolen and transported from Afghanistan, or from trucks captured from NATO transporting goods from Pakistan to Afghanistan." [1] Even though being nicknamed the "American Market", this market sells "arms from the US, China, Russia, Iran and just about every other country you can think of".[1] It was announced in January 2014, that a food park will be added to the Market, to include "quality and hygienic foods"[2]
