Experience Johnnycake Day at Gray’s Grist Mill
Sunday, October 12, 2014 from 12:00-4:00
638 Adamsville Rd, Westport MA
Come by and sample Rhode Island Johnnycakes made with Gray’s Grist Mill Johnnycake meal. Most historians say Johnnycakes have been around in one form or another for centuries. Basic recipe is corn meal with some salt, hot water and perhaps some sugar fried on a hot griddle. There are a variety of different methods to cook and serve them.
Along with the sampling of Johnnycakes, there will be tasting of Gray’s Daily Grind new coffee blend “The Osprey” (Smithsonian Certified Bird Friendly Coffee).
There will be some cool critters like ponies, goats and alpacas as well as lots of skillful artists spinning, blacksmithing, weaving, and painting. A number of local businesses are coming together to show off what they do best.
The event promotes local culinary specialties, agriculture, handmade art, history, and education. We value the importance of supporting local products.
Meet local vendors, take a tour of the mill, watch demonstrations, visits with the animals and listen to live music. The children can ride ponies and paint pumpkins and enjoy a petting zoo.
Come join us for a family fun day!
