Fairfield is a unique convergence of excellent shipping thoroughfares, situated between the San Francisco Bay Area, the Sacramento metropolitan area, and the productive and picturesque Napa Valley. Business-ready with an ample water supply, turnkey and shovel-ready business parks, and a ready workforce, Fairfield has become a food and beverage hub on the west coast.

Businesses report the business-friendliness of City government in general and specifically how diligent the economic development staff is at helping them every step of the way in locating, relocating, or expanding their business in Fairfield.

Fairfield is one of the last bay area locations in which employees can affordably live AND work; offering housing options that range from workforce housing to executive estates, 9 two-year and four-year educational institutions within a 50 mile radius, open space for recreation, and a population with disposable income, Fairfield is a diverse and dynamic community that has it all!
