Market fair set at Johnson Hall
JOHNSTOWN — An 18th- century market fair will be held at Johnson Hall State Historic Site, 139 Hall Ave., on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.
Throughout both days, colonial sutlers (vendors) will offer their wares for sale.
Demonstrations of 18th-century daily life will add to the event, including an encampment, period dram (tavern) demonstration, and colonial toys and games. In the slave quarters, culinary historian and hearth cooking specialist Lavada Nahon will demonstrate open-hearth cooking and interpret historic African and African-American food ways.
