Market Street Halt was the smallest station to serve the town of Kidsgrove, Staffordshire, England. It was opened in 1909 and located on the Potteries Loop Line.  At first it was used by trains in both directions but was later served only by northbound trains due to the severe gradient, being a 1 in 40 climb southbound.
The halt closed in 1950 and the trackbed is now part of the Potteries Greenway.
