ISO Kenyon's Stone Ground Johnny Cake White Corn Meal

Kenyon's Grist Mill in Rhode Island makes a range of stone ground meals. Their white corn meal is the best I have tried for making RI johnny cakes. Whole Wallet used to carry them, but they have dropped the product and I am looking for a new source in Massachusetts.

The company is still very much in business

so it is simply a question of tracking them down locally.

BTW I tried Russo's without success.

  1. OK, I know it's not Masschusetts, but I did just see this at the East Side Marketplace in Providence, which is well worth a visit.

      I was going to say the same. But it is true. 50 minutes south of here is not actually Massachusetts.

        I know that market and I may be going to Providence in the next month or two, but something closer is better.

    2. I know there are local retailers of this great stuff, but it's been a while since I bought a bag. I'm sure other Hounds will know where.

      1. you may just need to look somewhat closer to the RI border. I live in Attleboro, & Kenyon's is generally available at the Stop and Shop here. I believe Shaw's down this way carries it as well.

        1. You can buy it directly from Kenyon's online store.

          The other possibility would be to pick a favorite local store and ask them to carry it. Has anyone tried Harvest Coop to see if they carry it. They might have the right customers for this product.

          The other thing I love from Kenyon's is their clam cake mix-- it almost makes me want to fry at home. These are so yummy and just never show up in MA.


          1. I see it regularly at several Stop & Shops out here in MetroWest, most recently (yesterday) at the one in Westborough. They had both the corn meal (the blue box) and clamcake mix (the red box).
