The three square miles of the City of Taneytown host more than 140 businesses, from international manufacturers to sole proprietors operating out of their home. With a central location convenient to many interstate highways and larger cities, Taneytown is an ideal location for all sectors of business.

We invite prospective business owners and operators to view our demographics, regional transportation connectivity, and currently available commercial and industrial sites here.

We welcome shoppers – residents and tourists alike – to check out our comprehensive list of Taneytown businesses here. A map of downtown parking locations is included for convenience. You can learn more about our historic, walkable downtown at Main Street Taneytown.
