Founded in 1740, Enfield, North Carolina is the oldest
town in Halifax County. In 1896, the opening of the Enfield Tobacco Market
brought a glimmer of prosperity to this small town of 700 people (today 2300+).
As the tobacco market grew, new businesses were established along with the Bank
of Enfield, the oldest bank in Halifax County. Enfield is easily accessible 5
miles from I-95, Exit 154 (view local map

Peanuts, however, soon became the leading agricultural market in Enfield. The
establishment of many buying and cleaning stations for peanuts soon made Enfield
the world's largest raw peanut market. Every year is host to the
Festival. Family fun featuring good food, arts and crafts, farm
equipment displays, carnival and amusements, music and dancing and, of course,
the famous peanut — no small thing around here!
