White Market (609-611 E William St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104; (734) 663-4253) was a grocery and convenience store near the University of Michigan's Central Campus. It is now closed. It was the State Street neighborhood grocery.

It is notable for its large metal "Coca-Cola" sign on the outer east wall.

The market was one of very few relatively full service markets close to campus; in addition to the usual fare of chips and pop, you could buy meat and produce here.
