"Black Market" is an instrumental jazz fusion album released by Weather Report in 1976. This album was produced by Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter. It was recorded in December 1975 and released in April 1976 through Columbia Records. Columbia released it again as a digitally-remastered CD in 1991.

This is Weather Report's sixth album and the first with the bass player Jaco Pastorius who features on two tracks. The album draws heavily from African influences and its style could be described as "world fusion". The second song, "Cannon Ball" is tribute to Zawinul's then recently deceased former band leader, saxophonist Julian "Cannonball" Adderley.
