Publix Super Markets is expanding its revamped organic and natural foods GreenWise Market store banner.

In addition to showcasing unique local products, each GreenWise Market features a a mural created by a local artist. The 25,089-sq.-ft. Marietta store has a large-scale mixed media piece by Lillian Blades that was created with many different textiles and textures, including mirrors.
