Armory Marketplace

Visit Armory Marketplace for great shopping, classes, workshops and much more!

The Armory Marketplace, located directly behind the Armory on Main Street, is a bank of garages which the Town of Bel Air has rehabilitated into business incubator suites. The suites are available for new and emerging retail-oriented businesses that have the end goal of moving to a Bel Air storefront in mind. The business incubator program offers an advantage to entrepreneurs as it provides a storefront opportunity with reduced rate leases, technical and marketing support, business coaching and a sense of community with other entrepreneurs while they build their business models and strengthen their financial standing.
