We know it’s the busiest time of the year and you probably don’t have a lot of free time. Your house looks like the opening scene of “Home Alone,” your extended family is staying with you for the holidays, the kids are home from school and the last thing you want to do is try to prepare a nutritious meal for everyone. Let’s face it, it’s not as if anyone is offering to help. Take a step back. This is where Publix steps in.



Micro/Oven Bags

Our Produce department is now offering many new options to help get you out of the kitchen so you can spend more time with your loved ones. Check out our new Micro/Oven Bag vegetable sides options. These bags come in five varieties and are as simple as microwave-and-serve. Dustin Myers, a produce buyer for Publix had this to say about the new bags, “We wanted to focus on getting people around the dinner table with their family. For the winter months, we have two new limited time bags perfect for the holidays, candied butternut squash with dried cranberries and candied pecans and green beans with butternut squash spirals and cranberries.”

Ready-Cut Vegetables


Have you ever tried cutting hard vegetables such as potatoes, carrots or squash and always managed to end up damaging your newly bought produce? We know how frustrating this can be, so this holiday season, we’re doing the prep work for you. Our new and convenient Ready-Cut vegetables are available in our Produce department and feature selections such as Sweet Potato Spirals, Garlic Brussels Sprouts and Asparagus, Peppers and Onions. These are guaranteed to make breakfast, lunch or dinner a breeze and are the perfect option for the busy holiday months.


Now that you know all about our new Produce items, we hope you’re able to kick your feet up and relax a bit. Go ahead, you’ve earned it. Happy Holidays!
