相馬市(そうまし)は、福島県浜通りの北部に位置する市。概要福島県の浜通り北部に位置する都市である。戦国時代後期から江戸時代にかけて相馬氏の本拠地であり、特に江戸時代には中村藩6万石の城下町として栄えた。相馬市制施行以前は宇多郡に属してた。近隣の相馬郡や南相馬市を含めた相馬エリアの中で相馬市は行政機関の出張所が集約された土地であり、福島県中通りへのアクセスに最も長けた要所としての特徴を有する。港湾や海水浴場といった海辺を活かした産業で賑わいを見せている。東京都心からはおよそ270km。県庁所在地の福島市から相馬市は40km圏内に位置する。相馬野馬追が有名であり、当地の藩主であった相馬氏との縁は深く、近代まで相馬野馬追の出陣式に相馬氏の当主を招いていた事からも伺える。また相馬氏が馬の紋章を用いた事に因んで、市街地には馬の銅像が点在する。また二宮尊徳が飢餓・飢饉に陥った各地の村々に仕法(村興しの有効策)を行った土地でもある。中村城跡にある相馬神社は、妙見菩薩と平将門を奉る神社として今尚参拝者が多い。相馬盆唄など多くの民謡の発祥地でもある。
