The Co-op is New Mexico’s largest community-owned natural foods market. We are your one-stop shop for all things fresh, fair, local, and organic!
The Co-op is a friendly neighborhood store where the community can stop by for beautiful produce from farmers down the road, delicious lunches prepared by our expert deli chefs, beautiful gifts handmade by local artisans, and a wide selection of local and organic groceries including bulk foods, meats and cheeses, and natural body care.
Any kiddos shopping with an adult can munch on a FREE piece of hand-held fruit while cruising our aisles, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff with over 1,500* years of experience are always on hand to make your shopping experience a great one. (*Yeah, we averaged the years worked per staff member—pretty cool, huh?!)
We opened our first store serving 300 families in 1976 at the corner of Central and Girard in Albuquerque. Since then, we have grown to 17,000 families owning six stores in Albuquerque, Gallup and Santa Fe—check out our “Locations” page here to learn more about them! All locations are open to the public; you do not have to be a member to shop.
The Co-op is a leader in the local foods movement! We support local farmers through the Foodshed Project. This initiative helps local farmers and producers get their products into more markets.
Over 1,100 local products from 400 local producers make it to small community grocers, restaurants, and commercial kitchens as a result of the Co-op Distribution Center. We believe in the shared benefits of healthy food, sound environmental practices and a strong local economy with results that justify the resources used.
We know local, but we call it community. We serve our membership, but we also collaborate with farmers, local food and environment advocates, and educators to build community awareness about the links between food, health and the environment.
