The ultimate collection of quality crafted goods is gracing the Seaport once again, so consider all of your artisanal cutting board needs satisfied.

The marketplace pop-up, called American Field, has been purveying American-made products since 2011. It travels from city to city, celebrating craftspeople and their respective trades. When the event takes over the Innovation and Design Building this weekend, countless rows of tables will offer up artfully arranged home goods, fashion accessories, snacks, and beverages.

Look forward to kitchen supplies, rugs, candles, leather goods, journals, funky Edison bulb lamps, ever-so-soft throw blankets, and more from just over 80 vendors. And as you navigate among the more than 3,500 attendees, test out the event’s first shot at a Snapchat geofilter.

Earlier this week, American Field founder Mark Bollman told us that the market’s curated selection of unique products sets it apart from other pop-ups.

“With the ability to speak directly with the founder, innovator, or craftsman there is a rare opportunity to pull back the curtain and really learn the stories behind all of the brands at the show,” he said.

While the event will feature products from all over the country, Boston will be locally represented by companies like Ball and Buck, Boston Bag, Todder, New Balance, Randolph USA, and Rancourt Shoes.

“Everything is designed with purpose and is passionately crafted,” said Bollman.

Free, September 17-18, 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Innovation and Design Building, 23 Drydock Ave.,
