9 Mile Garden Brings Missouri’s First Food Truck Garden to St. Louis

St. Louis restaurateur Brian Hardesty and Seneca Commercial Real Estate announced today that they will bring Missouri’s first food truck garden to St. Louis in Spring 2020. 9 Mile Garden is a family-focused entertainment district where you’ll find a feast of local food and drinks, outdoor movies, live music and performances, community events and more.

Six days a week, 9 Mile Garden will feature a daily rotation of St. Louis’ best and most beloved food trucks open for lunch and dinner services. A jumbo screen will show outdoor movies and live stream sporting events, and a permanent stage will play host to local and national entertainers sharing live music and performances. The venue will be located at 9375 Gravois Road within Affton Plaza, a retail center owned and operated by Seneca Commercial Real Estate.

“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.”
