On September 25th, the Board of Directors ended the Co-op’s employment agreement with General Manager Shahid Mustafa. The board is grateful to Shahid for his many years of service to the Co-op. He has been unsurpassed in his support of the Las Cruces community, and we wish him great success in his future endeavors.

Have you ever heard the term "sustainable business" or "green business"? Actually, that's a term that can be used to describe the Co+op! Here are some of the thing we do here at Mountain View Market that make us a green business.
It’s time to start thinking about turkeys! This year we will once again be offering turkeys for preorder from Mary’s Turkeys.
Mary’s Turkeys has been family-owned and -operated since 1954. Their turkeys are raised in California on a gluten-free, vegetarian diet with no antibiotics, preservatives, or hormones. They are completely free-range — in fact, they are given more than four times the area to roam that the average commercial turkey ranch provides. Their high-protein diet makes them bigger and more flavorful. Trust us — you’ll taste the difference!
If you stop by the Co+op this week, you might notice an unusual fruit in our produce section! Quince is the cousin of apples and pears, but unlike those sweet, snackable fruits, it requires some work to bring out its delicious flavor. We have it at the Co+op now for $2.99/lb. If you've never cooked with quince before, here's the crash course!
We’re thrilled to announce that we have a new Kitchen manager: Lisa Acker! I sat down with Lisa to talk about her experiences in the kitchen, and what she has planned for the future.
Lisa started at the Co+op in early May. She has more than eleven years of experience in management at a big box retail store, but her cooking experience comes mostly from her own kitchen. “I love experimenting with food,” she says. “I love doing it at home, and now I have so many more people to experiment on!”
To answer this question, we need to have a quick history lesson. The kind of chile that people talk about when they talk about Hatch green chile is known by the umbrella term “New Mexico chile,” and it refers to varieties like Sandia, Joe Parker, and Lumbre, among others. These varieties were developed right here at our local university, New Mexico State, in 1888 by horticulturist Dr. Fabian Garcia.
