In a world where every purchase we make has the power to impact our community and our environment, shopping small and supporting local is more than a trend- it’s a lifestyle. Fargo is known as a city that supports local makers. With several boutiques and galleries downtown that showcase the work of artists and crafters throughout the region, we are proud of the talent within our community.
Taking this love of all things local to a larger scale we arrive at an appreciation for American Made goods in general- items that are imagined, invented, and crafted right here in the USA. American Made is all about the makers - individuals who have taken their passion for quality, craftsmanship, and good design and turned their dreams into a reality through a lot of hard work.
Sometimes American Made means small, one woman shops that craft upcycled neckties from locally sourced materials… other times American Made looks like a leather and canvas bag company that has been around since 1882. American Made goods come in all shapes & sizes, range from gourmet food products to one of a kind home goods, but they can always be traced backed to their roots right here on American soil.
Northern Folk is Fargo’s new way of celebrating American Made. It’s a one day pop-up shop packed with vendors that showcase a range of American Made products from both local and national makers that are committed to keeping their production in the USA.
The event is free & open to the public on Saturday April 18th from 2-8pm at the newly renovated space at 216 Broadway in Fargo (right above Ecce).
