Publix GreenWise Market opens in Tampa’s Water Street

Publix GreenWise Market opened its newest location in the redeveloped Water Street neighborhood of Tampa, Florida. It is the second of its new-concept specialty, natural and organic stores to be located in a high-rise, multiuse building. Above the store are two towers of apartment living and a parking garage.

According to the company, the specialty food store offers a variety of organic groceries, familiar favorites, house-made specialties, and more for health-conscious and gourmet foodies alike.

It also includes locally curated items and experience zones with products for any occasion. For example, for grab & go options, customers can visit POURS and EATS zones. Gourmet cheese, olives, cured meats, and wine pairings from around the globe can be found in FINDS. More options to cook at home can be found in CUTS and PRODUCE, with personal care items in CARES, said the grocery store in a press release.

Customers may also sign up for Publix GreenWise Market REWARDS to receive personalized offers. The hours for the location at 555 Channelside Dr, Tampa, are 7 am to 10 pm.

“So many exciting things are happening in downtown Tampa, and we are pleased to be part of that,” said Publix President Kevin Murphy. “Our curated mix of high-quality specialty make-at-home and grab & go items will add a level of convenience for residents and visitors looking for easy meal solutions as they enjoy the events and activities available in the surrounding area.”

This new Publix GreenWise Market features a mural by local artist Leon Bedore, also known as Tes One. The mural reflects the vibrant vibe of downtown Tampa through its vivid colors and modern shapes.

The 26,000 square-foot location will be connected to the district cooling system located in Tampa’s Water Street neighborhood. The chilled water from the cooling system provides improved energy efficiency and better stability for the air-conditioning and refrigeration systems. This will be the second time Publix has connected to a district cooling system for air-conditioning needs but the first time for refrigeration.
