Who We Are

La Montañita Co-op is one of only a few food cooperatives in the United States that owns its own full-service Distribution Center. Because of this, the Distribution Center can get the products of over 50 farmers, ranchers and producers into stores, markets and restaurants throughout the state of New Mexico, increasing access to healthy foods. “We work to increase the quantity, diversity and availability of local foods and to provide support for farmers, ranchers and producers. Supplying local and regional products help build our local economy,” says James Esqueda, La Montañita Cooperative Distribution Center Director. Many of these products can be purchased at one of La Montañita’s six locations (four in ABQ, one in Santa Fe and one in Gallup). When you shop with La Montañita, you support our local farmers, ranchers, producers and a thriving and sustainable local economy that benefits members and the community.
