Drottningtorget (English: Queen Square) is a major public square in central Malmö, Sweden. It lies between the main town square and Värnhem. The area dates back to at least the Middle Ages when the Adelgatan, one of the city's main streets, led to it and it became an important peasant trading centre. However, the modern square was added in the 1810s, when the old fortifications surrounding the town were removed.
The building on the square's north side was built in 1818. In 1900, it became the first covered market in Malmö. East and west of the square are houses from the 1890s and early 1900s, while the south side is flanked by an office building from the 1960s.
Sometimes an organized flea market takes place on the square. The Red Cross have a building in the area.
