American Field is a unique pop-up market for all things USA made. It all started in Boston in 2012. Mark Bollman, an American entrepreneur and maker himself took a step back from his primary business, Ball and Buck, a USA made men’s lifestyle brand to launch a new idea. His goal was to find American vendors, making American products and create a space where these vendors could exhibit and sell their items. The first pop-up shop featured 40 local vendors selling everything from craft beer to wooly sweaters. In four years time, the number of vendors has grown exponentially and we are excited to be one of the highlighted brands.
American Field doesn’t stop with the vendors. Bollman is inspired by venues that scream America. In Boston for example, the pop-up market is held in the Innovation and Design Building on Boston’s waterfront. This building was originally used as the South Boston Army Base – can’t get more American than that! Spaces like this urge shoppers and vendors to remember the good old days. Shopping at American Field is like stepping into the past. You have the opportunity to meet the makers, chat with the designers, challenge the engineers and learn more about the products you will come to love.
On December 2nd and 3rd, American Field will set up shop at the Brooklyn EXPO center located in the beautiful Greenpoint neighborhood. Greenpoint is the ideal location for American Field. The neighborhood is a popular place for startups, small businesses, artists, musicians, writers and designers. We couldn’t be more excited to join American Field this December!
Catch up with us at American Field Nashville November 19th and 20th and in Brooklyn on December 2nd and 3rd. We’ll see you there!
