Market Street Metrolink Station is a Manchester Metrolink station on Market Street, Manchester. Market Street is one of eight City-Zone Metrolink Stations.

Originally the stop in Market Street handled trams to Bury only, and the one around the corner in High Street handled trams from Bury only. When Market Street was closed to road traffic these stops were replaced by a new platform stop in the centre of Market Street, which handles trams in both directions. This stop opened on 10 August 1998.
