Straight meads i.e. honey water nutrients and yeast is known as traditional and using the walmart stuff wouldn't give the best likely result as it will have likely been processed to hell and back......
Honeylocator.com should give you something local. While you don't need raw honey, if you can get it or something less processed, you'd get a better result.
For yeast I'd suggest K1v1116 as its temperature range is pretty wide (10C to35C). It has a good tolerance for alcohol at 18% and does a good job with traditionals......
