Michael shopping at Publix SupermarketMichael Shopping At Publix Supermarket! 23-03-'03

Jackson spotting's in Palm Beach Post - First, he was spotted eating frozen yogurt at Sprinkles, an ice cream parlor on Palm Beach. Now add the Publix Supermarket in Boynton Beach to the growing list of Michael Jackson sightings in Palm Beach County.

Witnesses said the pop icon -- reportedly in the county shopping for real estate -- showed up at the grocery store in a black Mercedes at about 10 p.m. Friday, after the store closed, with an entourage of about six people.

It appeared Jackson was headed to a birthday party because he bought a birthday cake, champagne, balloons and roses, witnesses said. As word quickly spread, about 60 fans gathered outside the store. Doug Husen, a Delray Beach assistant property manager, said Jackson signed autographs and allowed the fans to snap pictures.

''I'm the greatest fan of Michael Jackson,'' Husen said. ''This was a once-in-a-lifetime thing.'' Jackson even traded hats, giving Husen the baseball-style cap he was wearing in exchange for Husen's Florida Marlins hat. 'I just said, `Michael, do you want to swap hats?' and he said, 'Sure,' and autographed his hat for me,'' Husen said. ``I still can't believe it.''
