Fengcheng (simplified Chinese: 丰城; traditional Chinese: 豐城; pinyin: Fēngchéng) is a county-level city in northern Jiangxi province, People's Republic of China, under the administration of Yichun, located along China National Highway 105 and on the eastern (right) bank of the Gan River about 55 kilometres (34 mi) south of Nanchang, the provincial capital. The literal translation of the name is "Abundance City", due to its importance as a major commercial hub for agricultural products. There are 26 towns and 7 sub-districts comprising a total area of 2,845 square kilometres (1,098 sq mi) and its population is around 1,370,000.[when?] The 2005 GDP was more than 91 billion RMB.

In 210 AD, during the Eastern Han Dynasty, it was founded as Jianyi County (剑邑县).
