Phillis Engelbert, a long-time Ann Arbor resident and once acclaimed social activist, never thought herself a restaurateur; but following her abiding passion for vegan eats and community fellowship made her one. What started with hosting dinner parties for neighbors and friends has now morphed into the Ann Arbor favorite, Detroit Street Filling Station (and sister property, the Lunch Room Bakery & Café, also located in Ann Arbor).
Folk’s story starts with the humble tomato. When Rohani Foulkes moved to Detroit in 2012, she tried to source a fresh, local tomato from a local grocery. As a native-born Australian, Foulkes was unaccustomed to the seasonal availability of Michigan’s produce and astonished by the lack of wholesome grocers downtown. This lead the classically trained chef and food educator to help develop the concept of The Farmer’s Hand, a farm stand providing locally sourced produce to Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood (and the precursor of sorts to what we now know as Folk Market and Café).
A visit to Windsor not only offers a diverse vegan food scene but also 100 miles of gorgeous waterfront with great views of Detroit, plenty of outdoor adventure, and an interesting history of booze with Canada’s iconic Canadian Club Whisky. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s head across the border and see what we’ve been missing!
