If you dread going grocery shopping on Sunday nights, we’ve got to let you in on a little secret: Publix GreenWise Market.

Publix GreenWise Market (PGWM) was created to be a different type of grocery store, where shoppers can discover curated products + services that can’t be found at traditional stores (like baked goods from Born & Bread Bakehouse in the Lakeland location). Here’s a peek at how each section in a PGWM helps transform the chore of grocery shopping into an actually fun experience:

From locally roasted and brewed coffee, acai bowls, and seasonally-inspired brews (might we suggest a Salted Caramel Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew?) to local craft beer + kombucha on tap, this section has a beverage for everyone. Shoppers can refuel during their weekly trip to the grocery store or take a break and relax at the bar. Bonus: PGWM carts have cup holders, so you can sip while you shop.

Not in the mood to cook? Swing by the EATS section. Their hand-crafted, made-to-order meals are a great solution if you’re stuck in a recipe rut. Shoppers can find artisanal sandwiches (topped with meats that are smoked in-house), burrito bowls + pizza fresh out of the oven.
