Try this:

Sub KillIt()
    Dim SearchRange
    Dim i As Long
    Dim position As Long
    Dim targetString As String
    targetString = "Market"
    SearchRange = Range("A1", Range("A65536").End(xlUp))
    For i = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row To 1 Step -1
        position = InStr(LCase(SearchRange(i, 1)), LCase(targetString))
        If position > 0 Then
            Range("A" & i).EntireRow.Delete shift:=xlShiftUp
        End If
    Next i
End Sub
