Feta Cheese

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.

Baba Ganoush

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.

Baklava

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 Mesa, AZ, 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!

Most Popular Wholesale Middle Eastern Foods

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.

Tabbouleh

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.

 Middle Eastern Market Mesa, AZ

Shawarma

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 Mesa, AZ.

Hummus

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.

Benefits of Eating a Mediterranean Diet

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:

Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

Reduced Risk
of Heart Disease

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.

Reduced Risk of Stroke for Women

Reduced Risk
of Stroke for Women

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.

Benefits of Eating a Mediterranean Diet

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.

Try these tips:

Try these tips

1.

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.

2.

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.

3.

Try planning out your meals using beans, whole grains, and veggies. Don't start with meats and sweets.

4.

They're tasty, but try to avoid processed foods completely.

5.

Instead of using butter to flavor your food, use extra virgin olive oil instead. Olive oil contains healthy fats and tastes great too.

6.

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.

Why Buy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Products Wholesale?

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.

Cooler temperatures and more thunderstorm activity is expected to pick up again through this weekend in Arizona, according to the National Weather Service in Phoenix.

Metro Phoenix got a glimpse of what the weekend has in store, as storms moved through the metro area and brought thunderstorms and wind with it on Thursday evening.

According to the weather service, monsoon moisture will gradually increase and peak on Friday through Sunday, when heavy rain and localized flooding chances will be the highest.

"This weekend looks to be one of our better setups of the monsoon season so far, many areas across the state could be looking at really heavy rainfall amounts," said Isaac Smith, a meteorologist with the weather service in Phoenix. "Our chances for thunderstorms this weekend climb to around 80%."

By Thursday night, the northern area of Phoenix saw a half inch to an inch of rain, according to National Weather Service in Phoenix spokesperson Paul Iniguez.

Iniguez said that a "flood watch starts at 11 a.m. Friday and it continues until Saturday night while those conditions are still in play with the broader weather system."

On Thursday evening, a flash flood warning was in issued and in effect until 12:15 a.m. of Friday in Maricopa County, impacting areas north of Glendale and Peoria, according to a tweet from NWS Phoenix. The service advised residents to move to higher ground and avoid driving through flooded areas.

The weather service in Phoenix also issued a special weather statement advising 50 mph winds until 7:15 p.m. in Phoenix, Mesa and Chandler. A severe thunderstorm warning was also in effect until 7:15 p.m. for Scottsdale and Paradise Valley.

According to the Arizona Public Service outage map, central Phoenix, Buckeye, north Glendale and Casa Grande were experiencing power outages Thursday evening. At one point, over 2,000 customers were impacted in Phoenix, while several thousand in the west Valley were still without power as of 9 p.m.

"We do have crews headed over to assess the situations. We do have field personnel that are being dispatched to all of the outages," APS spokesperson Lily Quezada said.

According to Quezada, APS prepares for monsoon season all year long by being staffed with crews that can respond when storms occur throughout Arizona. "We position crews wherever we believe that is going to happen so that they are ready to respond as quickly and safely as possible," said Quezada.

The weather service in Flagstaff issued a flood watch for Coconino County effective until 11 p.m. Thursday. Another watch remains in effect from late Friday morning to Saturday evening for most of southwestern Arizona.

A shelter in place order was issued for the Mt. Elden Estates area by Flagstaff.

Weekend forecast

Temperatures were expected to cool down into the 90s by Friday and "possibly upper 80s by Saturday," the weather service said.

According to Smith, a strong moisture outflow is expected to hit the Phoenix area on Thursday evening, bringing wind speeds of over 35 mph and more storm chances that will prevail through Saturday and slightly decrease on Sunday.

Smith said the areas that will likely be most affected by rainfall and flooding this weekend are the northern and southwestern parts of the state including parts of Maricopa, Pinal, and Gila counties.

Smith advised people to be prepared for the strong monsoon conditions this weekend.

"Since it's the weekend and people may have plans, people need to stay up to date with the latest forecast, along with warnings as well in the event they end up in an area that is expecting flash flooding or heavy weather," Smith said.

He also advised drivers to travel cautiously, as they face the highest risks when it comes to flash flooding.

"If you encounter flooded roadways, remember to turn around, don't drown," he said.

Weekend traffic

More conditions affecting drivers include weekend-long closures on Phoenix-area freeways.

A stretch of eastbound Interstate 10 will close near Sky Harbor Airport, between State Route 51 and U.S. 60, and along the Broadway Curve from 10 p.m. Friday until 4 a.m. Monday, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Drivers can also expect delays on westbound Interstate 10 as they will be narrowed to two lanes between 40th Street and the Salt River Bridge near Sky Harbor from 4 a.m. Saturday to 4 a.m. Monday. The eastbound lanes of the freeway will also narrow to three lanes between Baseline and Guadalupe roads from 10 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Saturday for construction work, ADOT said.

A section of eastbound Loop 202 in the southeast Valley also is scheduled to close between Cooper Road and Val Vista Drive in the southeast Valley from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.

Schedules and restrictions could change depending on weather conditions, ADOT said.

ADOT advised drivers to plan ahead, allow extra travel time and seek alternate routes.

Phoenix, AZ, Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nicola Wealth Real Estate (NWRE) has partnered with Hopewell Development (Hopewell) to acquire a 17.79-acre industrial development site in the North Mesa submarket adjacent to Falcon Field Airport and a total of 14.20 acres in the Corridor 101 submarket of Peoria.

Phoenix, AZ, Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nicola Wealth Real Estate (NWRE) has partnered with Hopewell Development (Hopewell) to acquire a 17.79-acre industrial development site in the North Mesa submarket adjacent to Falcon Field Airport and a total of 14.20 acres in the Corridor 101 submarket of Peoria. The two projects total 32 acres with the ability to develop up to 486,200 square feet spread over six buildings. These development projects are a further expansion of NWRE’s build to hold industrial development strategy and partnership with Hopewell.

The North Mesa project is located immediately south of North Loop 202, which provides efficient access to Downtown Phoenix and Sky Harbor Airport to the west and Mesa Gateway Airport to the south. The niche North Mesa location will deliver much-needed modern multi-tenant industrial product for small to mid-bay users. Mike Parker of CBRE brokered the off-market transaction and will be leasing the 264,500 square feet three-building project, which has been branded Falcon202 Commerce Park. Hopewell is currently securing entitlements, with construction anticipated to commence by early 2023.

In Peoria, the partnership has acquired the remaining two infill sites in Empire Business Park adjacent to Loop 101, capable of accommodating 221,700 square feet in three buildings. The 101 Corridor submarket is a highly sought-after location with excellent connectivity to the Phoenix MSA through immediate access to Loop 101 and US Route 60. Brian Gleason and Bonnie Haley of Colliers International brokered the transaction and will be handling the leasing. The three class A buildings ranging in size from 65,000 – 93,000 square feet are under construction and are capable of accommodating single users or multiple tenant demising plans.

“We continue to see strong leasing demand and rental growth within our existing Phoenix portfolio, reinforcing the need to deliver modern small to mid-bay multi-tenant industrial to these submarkets,” states Matthew Schaeffers, Director of Acquisitions at Nicola Wealth Real Estate.

Justin LeMaster, VP of US Industrial at Hopewell, adds, “We are thrilled to be working on these two new projects with Nicola Wealth. Both of these infill projects are located in areas with extremely high barriers to entry. Tenants have very few options for spaces of this size range if any. We look forward to delivering these projects to the market and continuing our long-standing relationship with Nicola Wealth.”

NWRE is concentrated on growing in major US markets such as Las Vegas, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Francisco, Minneapolis and Seattle with a focus on acquiring income-producing properties and executing build-to-own development and value-add strategies.

Mesa Airlines boosts pilot pay to combat staffing shortage

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- It’s been the summer of delays and cancelations. Across the country, airlines have struggled with staffing shortages. Now, in an effort to combat the ongoing pilot shortage, pilots who work for Phoenix-based Mesa Airlines are about to get a big raise. For some, the newly negotiated rates will about triple their pay. “I think what we’ve done is bold, but I also think it is entirely necessary and is something that is justified because there is no alternative. I mean, we’re not going to sit back and watch the company evaporate,” said Jonathan Ornstein, the chairman, and CEO of Mesa Airlines.

Mesa Airlines, a regional carrier that operates American Eagle and United Express flights, typically employs up to 1,100 pilots, according to Ornstein. Currently, the airline has about 750 pilots. “The number of hours we’ve flown has declined pretty precipitously over the last 12 months,” Ornstein told On Your Side. “There has been a pilot shortage that has existed for a while. It’s really been exacerbated because of Covid and a lot of retirements, and we were just losing too many people to the national carriers.”

In an effort to retain pilots and attract new hires, Mesa Airlines just reached an agreement to boost pay rates with the Air Line Pilots Association, which represents Mesa Airlines pilots. According to the new pay structure, 20-year captains will earn $215 an hour. First-year captains will earn $150 dollars an hour, which is up 118%, and new-hire first officers’ pay will jump 172% to $100 an hour, which is above the industry average, according to ALPA.

ALPA praised the new pay structure, saying it “offers the compensation mesa needs to remain competitive and attract and retain experienced, qualified pilots.”

The boost in pay had an immediate impact. “I would say the increase in the number of applicants is ten-fold, maybe more,” Ornstein said. “We’re going to make today over 100 offers for new pilots today.” Moving forward, Ornstein hopes to hire 50 to 80 pilots a month. “I think ultimately it will work,” he added. “It’s a three-year deal, so hopefully in three years we will come up with some additional solutions, but at least we’re buying some time to make the adjustments necessary and hopefully bring more young pilots into the pool of qualified applicants and folks that will be out there flying for us and other carriers.”

Ornstein acknowledges the pay bump for pilots could cost consumers. “As our wages go up, we have to be able to recoup those wages somewhere, and to do that obviously the ticket prices will be impacted,” he said. “Labor is generally the second-highest cost component after fuel, so if fuel prices went down, you may see no impact.”

“Hopefully we’ll also be able to increase travel options and make things better long term by attracting more pilots into the industry,” Ornstein added.
