9 Mile Garden, a Missouri food truck garden, is officially announcing the opening of its new season on Tuesday, March 1 with a Fat Tuesday extravaganza. The garden will resume operating seven days a week for lunch, dinner and special events. 9 Mile Garden is excited to be welcoming back the city’s most beloved food trucks for the season and an all-day Fat Tuesday celebration. The day will feature a special cocktail menu of Mardi Gras essentials, local music by Hosteen and the Aztechs from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and of course, beads galore!
“We are so ready to invite guests and trucks back to the Garden for another incredible season,” said Brian Hardesty, managing partner of 9 Mile Garden. “Mardi Gras is a St. Louis tradition and we can’t think of a better way to kick off the season than with a huge Fat Tuesday party celebrating our local food trucks and business owners!”

- Mothers on Wheels
- Picture Perfect Panini
- Quesa Don’s
