San Marco in Lamis (Sammarchese: Sànde Màrche) is a town and comune in the province of Foggia in the Apulia region of southeast Italy. It is located in the Gargano massif area.

Apart from some tourism connected to pilgrimages at the local Catholic sanctuary of St. Matthew, the economy is mostly based on agriculture.

'Le Fracchie' is a traditional celebration occurring each Good Friday where bundles of sticks are lit on fire, piled on small wagons and raced around the town.
