Mountain View market is located in Las Cruces, New Mexico, just 40 miles from the Mexican border, in the Mesilla Valley. Our community benefits from a rich cultural history, sunshine virtually every day of the year, amazing views of the dramatic Organ Mountains, and an active agricultural heritage fed by the Rio Grande River.
In 1975 on the New Mexico State University campus, a group of students decided to pool their resources and create a buying club in order to purchase whole foods at bulk prices. Very soon the operation became so large that it was more practical to open a store. A little building (originally a house) on Foster Street in Las Cruces became home to Organ Mountain Co-op. The store has always been open to the public.
Our co-op has also gone through many name changes since 1975, from Organ Mountain Co-operative, to Co-op market, to Mountain View market. Most everyone in our community just call us “the co-op.” Today, our cooperative is run mostly by paid staff, but there is a renewed commitment to return to core co-op values. Member workers are involved more at the co-op as well as local farmers and artisans who are able to sell their wares to their community members. We are proud that our store also serves as an informal gathering place for many people seeking to build strong community in our area.
Our farm families, the majority of which are of the Amish or Mennonite faiths, are determined to remain part of, and work with, the land; and with faith and trust in our Creator, to grow crops or animals of high quality, free of chemical and genetic pollution.

Franklin Community Cooperative (Green Fields market) is a natural foods supermarket owned by Franklin Community Cooperative. Formed as a buying club in 1976, the co-op has grown to become an anchor store in our downtown, offering our community a wide variety of goods and services.
We are proud of our “from scratch” bakery and deli with its busy full service counter and grab-and-go cases. The Pioneer Valley also has many small food producers and farmers, and on our shelves you will find an enticing selection of locally grown and produced products.
Green Fields market plays an active role in the community. We have been a consistently strong voice in town planning, working for pedestrian-friendly streetscapes, alternative transportation, and education on food issues. We use our large meeting room for workshops, staff education and to cater events. We are known and appreciated as a gathering place for many occasions!
We have been at our Main Street location since 1993 and we’ve seen many changes in Greenfield. What hasn’t changed is our continual effort to foster the sustainable development of our community and the co-op’s mission: to meet our members’ needs by providing quality goods that promote health and help build a sustainable local economy.
