Renowned, bi-annual maker and artisan fair Field + Supply announces it’s second-annual Virtual MRKT – a completely interactive experience and digital marketplace that will launch Thursday, October 8, and run through October 11th, 2020. The e-commerce marketplace launched in July 2020 as a permanent feature on the site, and affords consumers the opportunity to discover and shop featured Makers’ collections 24/7. This event is traditionally hosted over indigenous People Day weekend at Hutton Brickyards in Kingston, NY but moving to online has shown growth, drawing more than 15,000 unique visitors from across the country during the four-day launch event.
According to Field + Supply founder and interior designer Brad Ford, “Based on the tremendous success of our inaugural Virtual MRKT, we will host the fall Fair on Field + Supply’s digital platform to provide continued support for our broad community of Makers and share their stories with an even wider audience of design lovers across the country. While we were cautiously optimistic that events would be green-lighted to take place this fall, our average attendance is simply too large based on the current guidelines issued by local and state officials to ensure the safety and health of our vendors and guests.”
This innovative platform recreates the Field + Supply experience as a one-of-a-kind virtual event bringing Maker content, commerce and original programming together from the carefully curated group of artisans that Field + Supply is known for. Join in on the festivities at fieldandsupply.com.
