Agriculture

Tobacco plant

 

 

Tobacco was once one of Fairmont's biggest crops, giving it the reputation as the "Biggest Little Tobacco Market in the World." Corn, soybeans, and wheat are now profitable cash crops for local farmers. The Southeastern NC Farmers Market, located near Fairmont on Highway 74 is a great source of fresh fruits and vegetables.
