It’ll be located within Affton Plaza at 9375 Gravois Road.

Six days a week, 9 Mile Garden will have a daily rotation of St. Louis’ best and most beloved food trucks open for lunch and dinner services. There will be a jumbo screen for outdoor movies and to live stream sporting events. Additionally, a permanent stage will play host to local and national entertainers sharing live music and performances.

9 Mile Garden will also be dog friendly.

“Our vision is to create a destination where people from around St. Louis and beyond come together to enjoy food, entertainment, and community in a family-friendly environment,” said Brian Hardesty, managing partner of 9 Mile Garden. “By creating a daily food truck destination, we are also investing in the economic stability of our local food truck scene, delivering crowds of hungry diners to the doors of the chefs and food makers who continue to drive innovation and opportunity in our local culinary scene.”

The park grounds can be rented for private events such as weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, reunions and more. Complete with all the amenities for your next event: food trucks, movie screenings, live music and more.

The name ‘9 Mile’ comes from the days before streets had names or road markers and were named for their distance from the courthouse or city center. This food truck garden will be situated approximately nine miles from St. Louis’ Old Courthouse.
