I am flying out later today to head to Orlando with my fiance and two boys. We'll be staying at our condo and will have a rental car so even though there are options at our time share resort, we like to hit up grocery shopping at the local walmart or target. But is anyone familiar with this area or know of any grocery store chains that I could try some new things? Here in Pennsylvania, I do walmart, weis market, and giant. I always see you guys listing some fascinating options from grocery stores I have never heard of or been to before. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Where in PA are you? I'm in Philly and can shop at the markets you name, plus can easily get to an Shoprite, Fresh Grocer, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Acme.

I was just in Florida and went to Publix.

Publix. They have a LOT of really great options. ( In SC they do anyway. Hope it's the same there! ) That's where I do the majority of my grocery shopping. 

I woke up in between a memory and a dream...

We were there just last week. It seemed like everywhere we drove there was a publix. They were like most grocery stores I've been too. Lots of variety of healthy choices. 

Have fun
