Hedmarken (since 2003 the official spelling decided by Klagenemnda for stedsnavnssaker,[1] but also called Hedemarken) is a traditional district in the county of Hedmark in Eastern Norway.

It consists of the municipalities Stange, Hamar, Løten, and Ringsaker. Formerly, before a process of municipality mergers, it also contained the municipalities Romedal, Vang, Furnes and Nes.[1] The county of Hedmark is named after the district of Hedmarken but includes other districts as well, namely Østerdalen and Glåmdalen (Solør, Odal and Vinger).[2]

The district is dominated by rolling agricultural terrain, hilly green mountains, and pine forests.
