Publix now has 3 Green Wise Markets in FL which feature natural and organic products.  These markets publish their own sales flyer (different from the regular Publix ad).  I have heard that some regular Publix stores are honoring prices in the Green Wise flyer.  I plan to check with my store.  Green Wise stores are located in Tampa, Palm Beach and Boca Raton.
