The Seaport District continues to up its cool factor with Northern Grade. The self-described "roving market for the best American-manufactured goods" that carries everything from apparel and footwear to games and grooming supplies will stop roving to join the likes of Brother Vellies, William Okpo, and the ever-changing Seaport Studios come November, as Tribeca Citizen first noticed.
According to Culture Map, Northern Grade was founded in 2010 with the mission of celebrating the diversity of American businesses that manufacture their goods domestically. Prior to announcing plans for a permanent shop on Instagram, the company held pop-up shops year round in cities across America, including a stop or two in New York.
