Shot Tower–Market Place station is a Baltimore Metro Subway station in Baltimore, Maryland. It is in the central part of the city, in close proximity to many well-known landmarks, including the Shot Tower for which it is named, Port Discovery, Power Plant Live!, the Harbor campus of Baltimore City Community College, the National Aquarium, the Flag House, and Little Italy. The station has two street-level entrances, but unlike other Baltimore Metro stations that do, both these entrances share a common gate inside the station. The Shot Tower/Market Place station is one of two stops in the third phase of the Baltimore Metro, having opened in 1995.

Four display cases of artifacts found when digging during the construction of the station may be seen on the west side of the upper level of the station, on the street side of the pay gates.
