Dinner-goers visit 9 Mile Garden, a food truck garden in Affton July 2020.

9 Mile Garden, Missouri’s first food truck garden in Affton, is preparing for the holidays with a calendar of events throughout the season. 

On Dec. 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., there will be a market featuring locally made gifts for friends and family from dozens of participating vendors. Holiday shoppers will also get the opportunity to enjoy Christmas carols sung by the Vita Cantus Chorale adult choir, free photos with Santa, and Christmas movies playing all day. 

There will also be a New Year’s Eve Cocktail Party at the Canteen Dec. 31 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Event tickets are available for $60 per individual and $100 per couple and will include an open bar for the entirety of the event, a snack buffet, champagne toast, and live music by The Frontenac Trio. The ball drop in Times Square will be live streamed from 8 p.m. to midnight. 

9 Mile Garden will be closed Christmas Day and New Years Day. The garden reopens March 1 with the usual rotating lineup of food trucks and entertainment.
