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).
