St. Louis’ best food trucks are on rotation at 9 Mile Garden.

The 2-acre venue provides a spot to enjoy delicious bites in a lively atmosphere stocked with board games, cornhole, washers, and cozy fire pits.

The garden hosts movie nights and sporting events on the big screen, live music performances, Sunday brunch and more. The Canteen, a modern draft house, is a 4,500 square-foot indoor space to compliment the picnic park. A wide selection of draft beers, draft wines, cocktails, and ciders are on tap all year long in The Canteen.

Investing in the local culinary scene with a stable food truck destination drives opportunities for local businesses. 9 Mile Garden is a collaboration between restaurateur, Brian Hardesty, and Seneca Commercial Real Estate. The shared vision made a destination where people from St. Louis and beyond gather to enjoy food, entertainment, and community.
