Publix’s GreenWise Market stores in Florida's Lakeland, Odessa, Fort Lauderdale and West Boca Raton markets are offering a wellness series throughout June that includes weekly sampling events and exercise classes to engage locals. The series, dubbed “Gather at GreenWise Market,” is curated by Mind Body Social, a South Florida-based marketing firm that specializes in creating experiences and pop-up events to promote personal well-being and human connection.

The events are free to attend and take place every Saturday. They kicked off June 4 in the Odessa and Lakeland storefronts with morning activities such as yoga, yoga for kids and Zumba classes, followed by GreenWise Market protein smoothie samples and food tastings (made in-house).

"We're excited to be expanding the Gather at Greenwise Market by Mind Body Social series to our neighbors in central Florida," said Maria Brous, Publix director of communications, in a news release. "The Mind Body Social team has been able to engage our customers by curating engaging programming designed for each community where our wellness series is offered."

Mind Body Social Events is an existing partner of Publix. Luis Sanabria, co-founder of the firm said in a news release: "We feel privileged to expand our collaboration with Publix GreenWise Market that brings wellness and joy to communities across Florida."
