Rosemarket is a village, parish and community in Pembrokeshire, Wales, north of Milford Haven.
The name does not refer to flowers but to the hundred of Roose, the former Welsh cantref of Rhos.
The village was a marcher borough founded by the Knights Hospitaller in the 12th century. Owen, in 1603, described it as one of nine Pembrokeshire "boroughs in decay".
The parish church, like many in the former lands of Rhos, is dedicated to the 6th-century Breton prince and Welsh saint Ismael. The village has a medieval dovecote and a large hillfort.
The village has its own elected community council and is part of the electoral ward of Burton for the purposes of elections to Pembrokeshire County Council.
