So, when it comes to the most popular wholesale Mediterranean products in San Antonio,
what are we talking about?
Feta cheese is a classic Mediterranean dairy product that is often enjoyed on its own, in Greek salads, on bread, or mixed with zucchini. Depending on where the feta is sourced and produced, the cheese can be made from cow, sheep, or goat milk, or even a combination of the three. Regardless of the animal it comes from, this delicious cheese is a crowd favorite.
This Levantine dish is one of the most well-known Mediterranean dishes to eat in the United States. It typically comes in the form of a dip, served with pita or another kind of dipping bread. Commonly served before dinner as an appetizer of sorts, it usually features tahini, eggplant, garlic, spices, and sometimes yogurt. This tasty cuisine works great as a spread on a sandwich, or you can even eat it with a spoon, all on its own.
If you have never tried authentic baklava before, get ready to have your mind blown. This dessert is a traditional Mediterranean food that will have your taste buds craving more and more. Once you open a box of baklava from our Mediterranean grocery wholesaler in San Antonio, TX, you won't want to stop eating! Baklava is made with layers of thin filo dough, which is layered together, filled with chopped nuts (think pistachios), and sealed with honey or syrup. Baklava is so good that its origins are debated, leaving many wondering which country invented the dessert. Everyone from the Turks to the Greeks and even Middle Easterners hold unique takes on baklava. Try each one to discover your favorite!
Fresh, healthy, aromatic, rich: it's no wonder that the popularity of Middle Eastern cuisine and products has skyrocketed in the United States. This genre of cuisine features a large variety of foods, from Halvah to Labneh. If there were one common theme throughout all Middle Eastern food, it would be the bright, vibrant herbs and spices that are used. These flavorings help create rich, complex flavors that foodies fawn over. Typically, Middle Eastern food is piled high for all to eat, with enough food for an entire republic to put down.
This refreshing, healthy dish is chock-full of greens, herbs, tomatoes, and bulgur (or cracked wheat), creating a memorable, bold flavor. This dish may be eaten on its own or paired with a shawarma sandwich or helping of falafel. It's best to buy your ingredients in bulk to make this dish because it tastes best freshly made with family around to enjoy. Just be sure to bring a toothpick to the tabbouleh party - you're almost certain to have some leafy greens stuck in your teeth after eating.
We mentioned shawarma above, and for good reason - this dish is enjoyed by men and women around the world, and of course, right here in the U.S. Except for falafel, this might be the most popular Middle Eastern food item in history. Shawarma is kind of like a Greek gyro, with slow-roasted meat stuffed in laffa with veggies and sauce. The blend of spices and the smoky meat mix together to create a tangy, meaty flavor that you will want to keep eating for hours. For western-style shawarma, try using beef or chicken. For a more traditional meal, try using lamb from our Middle Eastern grocery distributor in San Antonio, TX.
Traditionally used as a dip meant for fresh pita, hummus is a combo of chickpeas, garlic, and tahini, blended together until silky, smooth, and creamy. You can find hummus in just about any appetizer section of a Middle Eastern restaurant menu. That's because it's considered a staple of Middle Eastern food that can be enjoyed by itself, as a spread, or with fresh-baked pita bread. Hummus is also very healthy, making it a no-brainer purchase from our grocery store.
If there's one diet that is most well-known for its health benefits, it has got to be the Mediterranean diet. In 2019, U.S. News & World Report listed the Mediterranean diet as No. 1 on its best over diet list. This incredible diet has been cited to help with weight loss, brain health, heart health, diabetes prevention, and cancer prevention.
Whether you already love Mediterranean food or you're looking to make some positive changes in your life, this "diet" is for you. Eating cuisine like Greek food, Persian food, Turkish food, and Italian food is healthy and tastes great. Even better than that? At Nazareth Wholesale Grocery, we have many staples of the Mediterranean diet for sale in bulk so that you can stock up on your favorites at the best prices around.
So, what exactly is the Mediterranean diet?
It is a way of eating that incorporates traditional Greek, Italian, and other Mediterranean cultures' foods. These foods are often plant-based and make up the foundation of the diet, along with olive oil. Fish, seafood, dairy, and poultry are also included in moderation. Red meat and sweets are only eaten in moderation, not in abundance. Mediterranean food includes many forms of nuts, fruits, vegetables, fish, seeds, and more. Of course, you can find at them all at our wholesale Mediterranean grocery store!
Here are just a few of the many benefits of eating a healthy Mediterranean diet:
Many studies have been conducted on this diet, many of which report that Mediterranean food is excellent for your heart. Some of the most promising evidence comes from a randomized clinical trial published in 2013. For about five years, researchers followed 7,000 men and women around the country of Spain. These people had type 2 diabetes or were at a high risk for cardiovascular disease. Participants in the study who ate an unrestricted Mediterranean diet with nuts and extra-virgin olive oil were shown to have a 30% lower risk of heart events.
In addition to the heart-healthy benefits of a Mediterranean diet, studies have shown that eating healthy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern foods can reduce the chances of stroke in women. The study was conducted in the U.K., which included women between the ages of 40 and 77. Women who stuck to the Mediterranean diet showed a lower risk of having a stroke - especially women who were at high risk of having one.
First and foremost, purchase your Mediterranean and Middle Eastern wholesale foods from Nazareth Grocery - we're always updating our inventory! Getting started on this healthy, delicious diet is easy.
Instead of unhealthy sweets like candy and ice cream, try eating fresh fruit instead. It's refreshing, tasty, and often packed with great vitamins and nutrients.
Try eating fish twice a week, in lieu of red meat. Fish is much healthier and doesn't have the unfortunate side effects of red meat, like inflammation.
Try planning out your meals using beans, whole grains, and veggies. Don't start with meats and sweets.
They're tasty, but try to avoid processed foods completely.
Instead of using butter to flavor your food, use extra virgin olive oil instead. Olive oil contains healthy fats and tastes great too.
Try to get more exercise and get out of the house. The Mediterranean lifestyle is an active one, best enjoyed in the beautiful sunshine when possible.
Buying wholesale and retail are quite different. When you buy products from a wholesaler, you're essentially buying from the middleman between a retail establishment and the manufacturer. Wholesale purchases are almost always made in bulk. Because of that, buyers pay a discounted price. That's great for normal buyers and great for business owners, who can sell those products to profit. This higher price is called the retail price, and it is what traditional customers pay when they enter a retail store.Free Estimate

Cleanup workers are struggling to remove mountains of floatable debris.
SAN ANTONIO — As the region prepares for the chance of rain on Thursday night, many are remembering last week’s big storm that forced mountains of garbage out of the storm sewer system and into the San Antonio River.
In spite of a push by the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) and a private contractor, much of the mess remains.
A cleanup is underway, but officials say it could get worse before it gets better.
A spokesman for SARA said staff members and contractors will be watching the weather, and if conditions allow, they will be working throughout the weekend to try to get the upper hand on tons of trash left by the last rain event.
MORE: San Antonio River overwhelmed by floatable debris
By the numbers, SARA reports so far more than 27,000 pounds of mixed litter and thatch has been removed since April 20.
River lover Sixta Garcia was on the Espada Dam overlook Thursday morning, taking a break from her studies. She said she loves the peace and tranquility she finds in the park but she worries about the wildlife struggling to cope with the human-made mess.
Garcia said, “It kind of breaks my heart seeing the wildlife maneuver around it, or they might get caught in it.”
The people in charge of the cleanup say we are all to blame.
Steve Graham with the San Antonio River Authority said, “We know from talking to people in surveys that people say, 'No, that litter's not mine. It's somebody else's,' but we all probably contribute to it no matter where we live in the city. It goes straight into our rivers and creeks."
One trail user summed the challenge up perfectly.
He said, "We can't even get people to use turn signals! They're not going to stop littering!"
Garcia agreed, saying, “You're driving and people are like 'Oops, here you go. Toss it out.' It's not cool. I think it needs to stop!"
Graham said while they work hard to help the ecosystem recover, stopping litter at its source is still a smarter idea.
SARA has a volunteer corps of people who like to help improve the river.
They call the program River Warriors and you can explore their website here.

Tulsa Drillers' Emmet Sheehan in action(Tulsa Drillers)
Tulsa, OK- Last week, the Tulsa Drillers suffered through their longest losing streak of the season, dropping four straight games. They have now followed it up with their longest winning streak of the year.
Entering a doubleheader with San Antonio Friday at ONEOK Field, the Drillers carried a three-game winning streak that increased to five in a row with a sweep of the Missions. Tulsa won the opener 4-0 behind five scoreless innings from Emmet Sheehan, before scoring late in the nightcap to take a 2-1 win.
Tulsa starting pitchers continue to be dominant as Sheehan and Landon Knack combined to stretch the starting staff's scoreless streak to 27 innings before the Missions produced a late run off Knack in game two. It was the first run given up by a Drillers starting pitcher in over five games.
In the first game, Jose Ramos put Sheehan and the Drillers on top with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning. It was his sixth homer of the season.
Tulsa scored its second run in the fifth inning when Eddys Leonard walked, stole second base and scored on a base hit from Jonny DeLuca.
Imanol Vargas doubled the lead to 4-0 with a two-run homer in the sixth. For Vargas, it was his fifth homer of the year.
The four runs were plenty of backing for Sheehan and a pair of relievers. The Tulsa starter worked five shutout innings, allowing just three hits and zero walks while striking out eight batters.
Ryan Sublette pitched around a walk in a scoreless sixth inning, and Jordan Leasure did the same in the seventh to close out the win.
Pitching was also the story in the second game with starters Landon Knack and Nolan Watson both pitching effectively.
The game was scoreless until the bottom of the fifth. With a 2-2 count and Carson Taylor at the plate, Watson left a 2-2 pitch out over the plate, and Taylor belted it into the bullpen beyond the right field fence for his first home run of the year.
Tulsa's 1-0 lead did not last long as San Antonio promptly answered with its first run of the game in the sixth inning. Jorge Ona led off with a double and scored to tie the game when Ray Patrick-Didder singled off Knack with one out.
It took the Drillers just five pitches to retake the lead in the bottom half of the sixth. Jonny DeLuca doubled on the second pitch of the inning before Jorbit Vivas flied out on the first pitch he saw. Andy Pages took a pitch before lining a double into the left field corner to score DeLuca and give the Drillers a 2-1 lead.
John Rooney, who recorded the final two outs in the sixth, quickly set the Missions down in order in the seventh to close out the win and complete the doubleheader.
TEXAS LEAGUE STANDINGS* TEXAS LEAGUE SCOREBOARD
HIGHLIGHTS AND HAPPENINGS:
*With the sweep, the Drillers moved into first place in the Texas League's North Division, one-half game in front of Arkansas. Saturday will mark just the second day this season that the Travelers have not at least been in a tie for the top spot.
*In two starts against San Antonio this year, Sheehan has not allowed a run and only three hits in ten combined innings. He has not walked a batter while striking out 16.
*In his game two start, Knack blanked the Missions through the first five innings while allowing just one hit. Despite being charged for the sixth-inning run, Knack's season ERA stands at just 1.50.
*After 24 games, Tulsa's starting pitchers have a 1.77 combined ERA with 118 strikeouts in 91.1 innings pitched. The starting staff has compiled a 0.99 WHIP. At the conclusion of the doubleheader, the 1.77 ERA was tied with Class-A Lake Elsinore, a Los Angeles Angels affiliate, for the lowest in Minor League Baseball, pending the completion of west coast games.
The Drillers and Missions will continue their series on Saturday night at ONEOK Field. Starting time is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. and the pitching matchup is scheduled to be:
San Antonio - LHP Daniel Camarena (0-0, 0.00 ERA)

Roadrunners baseball is pushing toward the postseason, and their MVP never even takes the field.
SAN ANTONIO — Something organic happened at a UTSA home baseball last year.
It wasn't planned, nor was it expected. It just happened.
"I'm the UTSA batgirl," said Georgia Hallmark, the daughter of Head coach Patrick Hallmark.
Georgia grew up in a baseball family, and even plays Little League herself. So how did she come to be the batgirl for one of the biggest teams in town?
"One day I just came into the dugout during a game, and my dad asked me if I had my helmet," she said. "He asked me if I wanted to get the bats and I said yes."
And Georgia has been doing it ever since.
"I know it (started) sometime last season," recalls Patrick Hallmark. "She wandered in during a game and it just kind of took off."
Coach said she gets a little bit chatty from time to time, but mostly it is all good.
Georgia's job is simple: She goes from UTSA's dugout to the home plate area to retrieve the Roadrunners' bats after each plate appearance. She also takes baseballs to the home plate umpire when needed.
That got us to wondering: Has Coach Hallmark ever had his daughter take out baseballs and deliver messages to the ump about his strike zone?
"I've told her to say it, believe it not," he said, laughing. "But I don't think she has."
(Georgie said she's never done it, either.)

Being the UTSA batgirl obviously comes with in-game responsibility. Georgia walked us through that process. ]
"After I get a bat, I gotta put it in the bin," she said. "I have to shove through a bunch of people to stand right there. Sometimes I stand there and right when I have to go get the bat I have to push them out."
Georgia loves being the batgirl, but there is one part of the gig that she likes more than any other.
"The players that I get to talk to," she said.
Georgia says that she keeps them in line, and only smiles with embarrassment when relaying the players' message that she takes her job seriously.
The Roadrunners say they love having her in the dugout on gamedays.
"She is great to be around," said sophomore pitcher Braylon Owens. "Being around her makes everybody relax, have fun and not be so serious about everything."
"I love it," added junior pitcher Drake Smith. "She is always playing games with me, doing all these different handshakes. Just always keeping me on my toes, really."
We noticed at this season's road game across town at UIW that Georgia was in prankster mode, having lots of fun with the players in the dugout.
"Sometimes they (the players) put water in each others pockets," she said, although she swears she's never partaken.
The batgirl explained to us why she's so comfortable with all the guys. It goes back to growing up with a dad and big brothers at home who all love the game.
"I know lots about it," she said. "I can relate to it really well."
Coach Hallmark said he's sometimes surprised she stays in the dugout for all nine innings. Yet she always does, game in and game out.
"She likes the guys. She likes shooting the breeze with all the guys."
For Georgia, being the batgirl is like having 37 big brothers who all share a little sister.
"It is nice to have her in there. When things are not going so well, she reminds me of what it is all about," Coach Hallmark said, getting emotional. "It's memories, right? That's what we are doing. We are making memories."

SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Missions continued their six-game series against the Tulsa Drillers on Friday night. After rain postponed the game on Thursday, the two clubs played a doubleheader. The Drillers allowed just one run across both games and secured the Friday night sweep. Game one ended in a 4-0 shutout victory for Tulsa and game two ended with a 2-1 final.
For game one, Efrain Contreras took the mound for the Missions and he was opposed by Emmet Sheehan for the Drillers. Contreras allowed the first run of the game in the bottom of the second inning. With two outs in the frame, Jose Ramos hit a solo home run. His sixth long ball of the season gave Tulsa an early advantage.
Contreras lasted four innings while allowing the lone run. He gave up two hits in total while striking out three batters. Sheehan on the other hand tossed five scoreless innings while allowing three hits and striking out eight batters.
The Drillers added an insurance run in the bottom of the fifth inning. Facing Alek Jacob, Eddys Leonard drew a leadoff walk and stole second base with one out in the frame. After advancing to third base with two outs, he came in to score on a single from Jonny DeLuca.
Tulsa made it a 4-0 ballgame in the bottom of the sixth inning. Facing Justin Lopez, Andy Pages drew a leadoff walk. Following Pages, Imanol Vargas hit a two-run home run. It was his fifth long ball of the season.
The San Antonio offense collected just three hits on their way to their third shutout loss of the season.
In game two, Nolan Watson took the mound for San Antonio against Landon Knack for the Drillers. Neither club scored until the bottom of the fifth inning. With one out in the frame, Carson Taylor hit a go-ahead solo home run. It was his first home run of the season.
San Antonio tied the game in the top of the sixth inning. Facing Knack, Jorge Ona doubled to start the frame. After striking out Chandler Seagle, Ray-Patrick Didder singled and drove in Ona. That was the end of the night for Knack.
The Drillers regained the lead in the bottom half of the sixth inning. With Watson still on the mound, DeLuca doubled to start the inning. After recording a fly out, a balk from Watson advanced DeLuca to third base. Pages hit a double to drive in the go-ahead run.
In the top of the seventh inning, John Rooney retired all three Missions batters to secure the second victory of the night.
In 5.1 innings of work, Watson allowed two runs on four hits while striking out two batters. For Knack, he lasted 5.1 innings while allowing a run. He struck out five batters while allowing three hits.
The San Antonio Missions will continue their six-game series against the Drillers on Saturday, May 6th. Left-hander Daniel Camarena (0-0, 0.00) is scheduled to pitch for the Missions.
