“American Field” is a gathering of USA Made fashion, apparel, footwear, and accessory brands in Downtown Boston for a two-day public pop up market.
Participating vendors will be showcasing and selling their USA Made products. The goal of American Field is two-fold; to not only raise awareness for these quality American brands, but also to inform consumers so that they can make educated decisions about how can spend their money to rebuild the American Economy. If every consumer spent just 5% more on USA made goods, it would create nearly 1,000,000 USA jobs and assist in the building of the US economy. The only way to achieve this goal is if we work together, a rising tide raises all the boats. The American Field market will show customers and the nation the people behind this new revolution in American Manufacturing and that by voting with their dollars they can have a direct impact on jobs in this country.
American Field will be open to the public from 10am until 6pm, September 28 & September 29, 2013. We are expecting to draw 3,000+ visitors this year. Vendors will be arriving the morning of September 28 to prepare their booths within the covered brick structure (currently used for parking) near the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Randolph St.
