Yadanabon Market (Burmese: ရတနာပုံဈေး) is Mandalay's second-largest market. It is between 77th and 33nd and 34rd streets, near the Mandalay Central Railway Station.[1][2] The market is now beside the Diamond Plaza.

The market was previously housed on the ground floor of Skywalk Shopping Mall, a five-storey complex that included a shopping mall on the first floor and restaurants and offices of the Trading Association and MICT Park on the second floor.[1][2] The shopping mall was built in 2003.[3]

A fire destroyed Yadanabon Market in February 2008.[2] The fire burned for 13 hours, destroying 1,558 shops and injuring 21 people.[4]

In 2009, it was reconstructed as Diamond Plaza and Yadanabon Super Centre.
