[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ASHINGTON DC – Shop Georgetown Park on October 17 and 18 and meet the people behind America’s most popular #madeinamerica brands. Uniting the top American innovators, American Field puts a spotlight on authentic, high quality products and connects these labels directly with the consumer. Founded by entrepreneur Mark Bollman and partnering with leading real estate management and investment firm Jamestown, the event will take place at Georgetown Park, a local icon situated between Georgetown’s two “Main Streets” and the historic C & O Canal in the heart of Washington, D.C. American Field will be held at 3276 M Street, NW, entrance on corner of M Street & Potomac (the plaza between the Georgetown Park and Dean & Deluca).
American Field aims to create a direct connection between the consumer and Made in USA brands. By introducing shoppers to the importance of buying quality, long-lasting products, the pop-up market supports the growth of independent, American-made labels.
Participating brands include Ball and Buck, Narragansett, Randolph Eyewear, and Rancourt Co, Bailey Hats and General Knot among many more. Showcasing everything from farm-to-table food to high-end menswear, American Field is a destination for all shoppers looking for the real thing.
“America’s success depends on our continued ability to make products on American Soil. Bringing American Field to the doorstep of US policy making is the perfect way to highlight the vendors’ shared passion for innovation and manufacturing to our nation’s leaders,” says Mark Bollman.
American Field will be held at Georgetown Park, entrance at the corner of M Street & Potomac (3276 M Street, NW), on Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18 from
10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. For more information: americanfield.us.

Today wrapped up the 2-day event at Georgetown Park. This year was the first time American Field travelled to DC (and hopefully the first annual). Vendors from all over the East Coast enjoyed establishing and/or boosting their presence in the DC region. Attendees shopped at familiar brands and were introduced to many new ones. Washington Wizards’ Kris Humphries made an appearance on Sunday afternoon and purchased items from three different vendors: Square Trade Goods, BisonMade and Mike’s Hot Honey. American Field conducted surveys (with both attendees and vendors) to learn about what they did well operationally and what could be improved to help the event reach its highest potential.
