A Great Bakery at Anna Maria Island’s Only Grocery Store Publix

Anna Maria Island usually runs to mom and pop locations, but never fear, we do have one location you will need to stop by during your vacation… Publix Supermarket.  It is a large store that has everything on your grocery list including items for that new recipe you want to try and the best bakery goods this side of the Mississippi.

The Bakery at the Anna Maria Publix

Well that last statement is just my opinion, but wow everything is fantastic.  Whether you need a last minute birthday cake, a unique loaf of bread for dinner or donuts for your office meeting Publix is the perfect place.  Did I mention they also make elegant wedding cakes that are all works of art not to mention delicious.  Usually you go to weddings and they have these frilly cakes that don’t taste as good as they look.  My wedding cake was a Publix original with different shaped tiers and tea lights on the corners.

My husband and I chose a red velvet cake with their famous buttercream icing.  It also had vanilla custard and strawberry filling.  We got so many complements, and there wasn’t any cake left sitting on tables at the end of the reception.  They also have a deli counter that makes sandwiches to order and fresh sushi for the more adventurous.  You can stop there on the way to the beach and get everything you would need for a picnic or just snacks for the kids.

Anna Maria Island Grocery Store – Publix

Publix on Anna Maria Island

The grocery store is located on East Bay Drive and is in Holmes Beach City surrounded by CVS as well as an outdoor mall that includes several restaurants, Walgreens, Gift and Beach shops.  It is a full service grocery store including a bakery, deli that makes sandwiches, fried chicken, and french fries.  Don’t expect homemade fresh pasta salads but they do have salads prepackaged.

They have a good fresh seafood area as well as meat packaged and fresh fruits and vegetables.  Here is a tip…in high season try to visit the grocery store before you check in if its a Saturday otherwise grab dinner elsewhere and try to grab groceries on Monday.  The high demand of buying groceries on Saturday and Sunday’s during high season sometimes leaves the shelves bare for very popular vacation items.
