American-Made, Made Easy
This weekend marks the inaugural American Field Movement pop-up market, featuring Ball and Buck, New Balance, and other purveyors (and beer!)

If stateside shoppers spent only five percent more on American-made goods, nearly one million new U.S. jobs would be created — that’s one way to end a recession.
With this statistic in mind, Ball and Buck founder Mark Bollman has curated the best of the best in domestic menswear for this weekend’s inaugural American Field Movement pop-up market. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in the South End’s historic SoWa Power Station.
More than 20 local and national brands committed to improving the economy will participate in the Movement, including Rancourt & Co., Hartford Denim Company, New Balance, Red Wing, Stormy Kromer, and Randolph Engineering. Food trucks will also be on location, and patrons can enjoy a micro-brewed pint in the Movement’s beer garden.

So take a break from watching the rowers at the Head of the Charles Regatta this weekend, and swing by the South End for some good old all-American shopping.
