Announcing the Third American Field, a Two-Day Celebration of American Makers Hosted by Ball and Buck and Jamestown at Boston's Innovation and Design Building

Leading Real Estate Investment Firm Supports Innovation Economy in Local Community With American Field Partnership

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- Leading real estate investment and management firm Jamestown announces that it will host the latest American Field event at its Innovation and Design Building (IDB) property in Boston's Marine Industrial Park this September. This is the third annual American Field, a two-day event that celebrates the best in American made clothing, accessories, food, and music. The event founded by entrepreneur Mark Bollman showcases the breadth of products made in the USA and reminds consumers that spending just five percent more on US made products will create 1 million American jobs.

American Field will bring together the top 100 brands that focus on American-made products, including men's and women's apparel, footwear, accessories, home furnishings, and other goods. To showcase their products, brands will provide on-site demonstrations, workshops and lectures to the 5,000-plus visitors. Attendees will also enjoy live music, a beer garden featuring local brews, and food from local restaurants and food trucks.

"This event raises awareness about the variety of goods that are being made in urban manufacturing centers across America," said Michael Phillips of Jamestown. "American Field is a perfect complement to the current mix of tenants at IDB which includes many influential contributors to Boston's thriving maker community."

The event will showcase the impact of buying local by connecting consumers directly to quality American brands. American Field aims to encourage attendees to become more attuned to where and how their goods are made and to empower consumers to make educated decisions about how their spending decisions can help rebuild the American economy.

"American Field sits at the crossroads between The World's Fair and SXSW," said American Field's founder Mark Bollman. "It's a full body experience of all things America and a true celebration of the amazing things being created in this country. You'll see everything from high quality menswear to farm-to-table food, all while enjoying the sweet sounds of homegrown bluegrass. It's my favorite event of the year."

The American Field market will be held Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14 from 10:00am-6:00pm at the Innovation and Design Building. 2013 Sponsors included: Ball and Buck, Jamestown L.P., LL Bean, Randolph Engineering, Rancourt & Co., and American Made Matters.
