Agriculture is one of our region’s most important industries.
There is a strong interdependency of agricultural jobs and agricultural-related jobs in non-agricultural sectors which directly affect the spending power in the region. The “Local Food Movement” is also creating a significant impact through farmers’ markets, field to table restaurants, breweries, distilleries, cideries and wineries. Spokane is also home to Spokane Ag Expo and Pacific Northwest Farm Forum, one of the largest farm shows in North America.
Leading industry segments include:
- Wheat, Hay, Barley, Legumes
- Potatoes, Vegetable Crops
- Cattle, Dairy
