About Us / Mountain View Market Co-op History: Mountain View Market is located in Las Cruces, New Mexico, just 40 milesfrom the Mexican border, in the Mesilla Valley. Our community thrives on arich cultural history, 350 days of sunshine a year, and an active farmingcommunity fed by the Rio Grande River. In 1975 on the New Mexico StateUniversity campus, a group of students decided to pool their resources andcreate a buying club in order to purchase whole foods at bulk prices. Verysoon the operation became so large that it was more practical to open astore. A little building (originally a house) on Foster Street in LasCruces became home to Organ Mountain Co-op. The store has always been opento the public. We are proud that our store also serves as an informalgathering place for many people seeking to build strong community in ourarea through the use of our Community Room and our seasonal Growers Market.In October of 2011 we began leasing a 2 1/2 acre farm in the fertileMesilla Valley. We have a full-time farm manager who oversees diversemixed-vegetable production, laying hens, and an in-depth compostingoperation that includes active vermiculture. This farm allows us tostrengthen our commitment to local food security, our community’sagricultural heritage, and ensure the continued access to healthy,sustainable food and education. We are proud to offer our farm’s produceboth in store and at area farmers’ markets.
