Wool Market (also Woolmarket) is an unincorporated community in Harrison County, Mississippi.[1] Wool Market is approximately 2.7 miles (4.3 km) northwest of Biloxi and part of the Gulfport-Biloxi metropolitan area.

Historically, the settlement was called "Wool Market",[2][3] though presently, the one-word "Woolmarket" has been adopted, as can be observed at "Woolmarket Elementary School", and in official documents published by Harrison County government.[4][5]
