Talbot County is a premier location for modern business enterprises. It's conveniently located to the Annapolis, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, yet the County retains its unspoiled rural character and supports vibrant, safe towns with strong, balanced economies.
Easton serves as the county seat and is the economic and cultural center of the region. Tourism drives the economy in St. Michaels, while private marinas and boat building enterprises are the primary employers in Oxford. On Tilghman Island, a small yet tenacious community of working watermen still ply the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, fishing for crabs, oysters and fish.
Production agriculture and food industries operate successfully alongside environmentally friendly technology companies, light manufacturing, tourism and service industries. Successful economic development creates more local job opportunities while also sustaining the quality of life in the County.
