The Northeast Marketing Center provides marketing services to growers, packer/shippers, processors, wholesale buyers, and several commodity associations in this important vegetable and seafood production region. Some of North Carolina's most productive farm land and great waterways are located in this region.
These lands produce excellent quality produce such as potatoes, watermelons, cabbage, and a variety of other vegetables. These crops are shipped throughout the eastern U.S. and Canada.
The abundant waters of eastern North Carolina provide an excellent resource for the states large seafood/aquaculture industry. Annual harvests of flounder, shrimp, blue crabs, clams, scallops, mackerel, tuna, snapper, oysters, and trout have been a mainstay for down east communities for generations. Aquaculture production of catfish, hybrid striped bass, crawfish and ornamental fish continues to be one of the most exciting areas for expansion of North Carolina agriculture.
Marketing specialists in this office provide assistance in locating buyers and suppliers, developing new markets, designing marketing strategies, and conducting marketing promotions to increase demands of these commodities.
You can e-mail the designated marketing specialist for assistance with these commodities or click the crops for more information.
