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 businesses that have the end goal of moving to a Bel Air storefront in mind. Business incubators offer an advantage to entrepreneurs as they provide a storefront opportunity with reduced rate leases while the business owners build their business models and strengthen their financial standing.
