Head to the locally owned Los Alamos Cooperative Market this week for everything needed for the perfect—and sustainable—Thanksgiving table.
All-natural and organic varieties of Mary’s free-range, non-GMO turkeys are available in a variety of sizes. The turkeys, which were raised by the Pitman family in California’s sunny San Joaquin Valley, were fed a vegetarian diet, did not receive antibiotics, and were raised without added hormones. The meat contains no preservatives.
Beeler’s hams (boneless or bone-in) also are available in spiral cut, halves or quarters. Both turkeys and hams are available on a first-come, first-serve basis—however, turkeys will not be available on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24, because the Co+op is closed that day.
“I want the staff to have more time with their families,” says General Manager Tim Morrison.
Members and non-members are always welcome to shop at the Co+op.
Co+Op Holiday Hours:
- Thanksgiving, Nov. 24: store closed;
- Christmas Eve, Dec. 24: store closes at 5 p.m.;
- Christmas Day, Dec. 25: store closed;
- New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31: store closes at 6 p.m.; and
- New Year’s Day, Jan. 1: store opens at 10 a.m.
Other holiday items featured this season at the Co+op include the infamous Butterscotch Beer (nonalcoholic) made popular by the Harry Potter films. Also on the shelves are Enerhealth Cocoa MoJo (vegan, gluten-free, organic hot chocolate with mushrooms), Field Day grade-A organic maple syrup, and New Mexico piñon coffee.
In addition to showing support for the Co+op by shopping in the store (thank you!), the Co+op would like to invite the community to participate in the Winterfest Light Parade Saturday, Dec. 3. As usual, Co+op board and staff members will push twinkling shopping carts down Central Avenue. Rendezvous by 4:45 p.m. at Canyon School. Whether walking with the Co+Op board and staff or simply spectating, the Co+Op looks forward to celebrating the season with the entire Los Alamos community!
