Yes! It's true and the Suflower Cafe featuring a 100% organic menu with gluten free and vegetarian options is a true gem and a good sign that positive change continues to unfold in this historic neighbourhood. 
Owner,Patricia Jullian, told us she feels Ford City is poised for a comeback and this is a good time to get in at the ground level of its upward journey. Patricia explained that there is a demand in Windsor for this type of business, 100% organic, and with the loaction being so central in Windsor and the rent being very affordable it seemed like the timing was right for the Sunflower.  

The Sunflower CafĂ© is located on 1659 Drouillard Road, free street parking.  
Hours of operation are Tuesday through Sunday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call (519) 915-8898.

Happy New Year and Updates

                                                                                    Happy New Year!

We hope everyone had a very fun and safe holiday break this season.  The 2nd Annual Ford City Winter Wonder Festival was a great success! Thanks to those who attended the Tree Lighting Ceremony on December 13 and the Family Christmas Party on December 17. Thank you to all the volunteers on the Ford City Residents in Action who put in countless hours preparing for the big week and to those who helped at the events.  We would also like to thank the Ford City BIA for their sponsorship, Tim Horton's and Cold Stone Creamery for the food and beverage, Lowe's who supplied gift cards for the Ford City Decorating Contest, Dillon Consulting who supplied contest prizes and the cookie decorating station, Windsor Fire & Rescue for providing gifts to every child through their Sparky's Toy Drive program and Santa and Mrs. Claus.  Photos from the Winter Festival can be found on our Facebook.
We have a lot of great things planned for the new year and we are committed to working with our partners at the Ford City Residents in Action, Ford City BIA, the Ford City Redevelopment Committee, and the City of Windsor.  We are excited to see these organizations grow and work together for the benefit of Ford City.
