Märket ("The Mark", ) is a small 3.3-hectare (8.2-acre) uninhabited skerry in the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland (in the area of the autonomous Åland Islands), which has been divided between two sovereignties since the Treaty of Fredrikshamn of 1809 defined the border between Sweden and the Russian Empire as going through the middle of the island. The westernmost land point of Finland is on Märket. The Finnish side of the island is part of the Municipality of Hammarland. The Swedish part of the island is itself divided by two counties of Sweden: Uppsala County (Östhammar Municipality) and Stockholm County (Norrtälje Municipality).

Famous quotes containing the word market:

    the old palaces, the wallets of the tourists,
    the Common Market or the smart cafés,
    the boulevards in the graceful evening,
    the cliff-hangers, the scientists,
    and the little shops raising their prices
    mean nothing to me.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Mikhail Gorbachev (b. 1931)
