New Food Truck Garden announces opening date of Spring 2022
COTTLEVILLE, MO (StLouisRestaurantReview) This Spring, residents of Cottleville and the surrounding St. Charles County area will get to experience Missouri’s newest Food Truck Garden, Frankie Martin’s Garden located at 5372 St. Charles Street.
From the visionaries that brought you 9 Mile Garden in Affton, Frankie Martin’s Garden will share similar family-friendly characteristics with its sister location but will also add a selection of new features as well.
Named in honor of late Cottleville resident Frank J. Martin, the Food Truck Garden sits on a 2.74-acre site and will feature sprawling pavilions, a live music stage, pickle ball courts, a large 26’ LED Wall, food truck staging, a large beer pavilion, and an impressive whiskey and wine bar housed in Martin’s preserved former residence.
The main house provides an intimate 770 square feet of bar space which will be home to the whiskey and wine bar. The menu will feature a selection of over 230 whiskeys from around the world and a large portfolio of fine wine. At Frankie Martin’s Garden, guests will be able to purchase a glass or a bottle of wine and take it outside to enjoy with friends and family. The main Garden area will showcase a 2,400 square foot open-air beer pavilion featuring the best craft breweries in the country and will be ready for gatherings big or small.
The main gathering area of the Garden will feature a number of pergolas and pavilions dispersed throughout the property as well as shaded picnic tables and fire pits. Frankie Martin’s Garden will be open 7 days a week featuring food trucks offering regular lunch and dinner service. In addition to food trucks service, the garden will host an exciting array of free events, with weekly occurring events, such as live music, to be announced this Spring.
