The city of San Joaquin is a farming community located thirty miles west of Fresno and was incorporated on February 14, 1920. Cotton is the major commodity in the area, along with various other crops. San Joaquin will soon be a center link, as Manning Avenue now connects Highway 99 with Interstate 5. This connection will attract business and promote growth in the area.
