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.

It's been more than five months since Beatrix Freeman was hit by a car as she and her family were leaving a church visitor's center in Mesa.

Her mom, Marilyn Freeman, says it's the kind of thing moms know, but as little Beatrix played with her siblings, the only sign that she was hit by a car is the scar on her face.

“It’s been really hard at times... the first couple of weeks were survival mode,” said Freeman.

The group was crossing the street when the 4-year-old was hit.

The driver left the scene.

“Bea doesn't remember the accident,” said Freeman while holding her daughter. She said Bea only knows what they have told her and thinks that’s truly a gift.

However, the mom of five said her daughter does remember the weeks she spent in the hospital healing from serious head injuries and the months she spent wearing a neck brace.

Throughout the healing process, the family says they are leaning on their faith.

While at Phoenix Children’s hospital, Freeman even wrote down their blessings and miracles as support poured in.

But on Tuesday, Freeman watched her 4-year-old just be a regular kid.

"I just catch my breath and see her and I'm just grateful,” said Freeman.

“My day is on April 30th,” said Bea. Her personality is still loud and clear.

The 4-year-old's family is also still slowly healing from their trauma.

“We were the ones that were there — me and my girls,” said Freeman.

She told ABC15 her daughters are “solid” and all examples of light to her.

Freeman knows there are still loose ends legally.

The hit-and-run driver, Veronica Laprada, was tracked down and later pleaded guilty to leaving the scene. But court documents say she recently didn't show up for her sentencing hearing, and there's now an active warrant out for her arrest.

“I’ve intentionally and unintentionally not thought about the driver very much, but we forgive her,” said Freeman.

She said her focus is on her family and Bea.

“Throughout all of this, I'm just choosing to focus on Bea and the light she is and all the progress she's made,” said Freeman.

Bea will have follow-up appointments, and her family is treating her scar. Down the road, she may need orthodontic work as well.

As they wait to see what their hospital bills will add up to, they are grateful for the community support.

A fundraiser was created to help the Freeman family and remains active.

Trammell Crow completes 516K SF Elliot Gateway in Mesa

Trammell Crow Company, the global commercial real estate developer, and JV partner CBRE Investment Management, a global real assets investment management firm, announced that construction is complete at Elliot Gateway in Mesa, Arizona. The four-building logistics park sits on a 40.5-acre site at 9020 East Elliot Road and includes four Class A industrial facilities.

Within Elliot Gateway, three buildings remain available for lease; Building A spans 151,239 square feet, Building B spans 124,611 square feet, and Building D spans 54,640 square feet. Building C includes 186,000 square feet and is fully leased to a mechanical and electrical construction company. Each building within Elliot Gateway offers ample car parking, secure truck courts and excellent accessibility.

“Elliot Gateway is an incredibly well-located project in the City of Mesa, situated in the center of the Elliot Technology Corridor, a key demand driver and growing technological center point of the Southeast Valley that is attracting a variety of new businesses,” said Ryan Norris of Trammell Crow Company. “The remainder of the space that is available for lease at Elliot Gateway is well-suited for a variety of uses, including high-tech manufacturing and logistics. Tenants will greatly benefit from highly visible freeway frontage and direct access off the full diamond interchange at Elliot Road and the Loop 202.”

Graycor Construction Company served as the general contractor. Butler Design Group was the project architect.

“Industrial facilities have been booming in Mesa over the past several years, but Elliot Gateway is setting the bar with its sophisticated building features and offerings,” said Rusty Martin, Graycor General Manager of the Southwest. “The placement and design of Elliot Gateway turns a traditional industrial project into a dynamic, horizontal mixed-use business park that will attract heavy-hitter industrial/employment opportunities.”

The Elliot Gateway site plan was conceived with connectivity in mind with new private drive extensions, a series of interconnected sidewalks and pedestrian rest nodes featuring seating areas that are naturally shaded by tree canopies. The project’s landscape consists of native vegetation that spans the full site and visually ties Elliot Gateway together from border to border.

Elliot Gateway was also designed and developed with sustainable practices intended to reduce the project’s overall carbon footprint. Precast panels were fabricated on site from locally sourced concrete suppliers. Highly reflective TPO roof systems and desert landscaping help to reduce the heat island effect, and watering systems reduce water consumption. Clerestory windows and roof skylights reduce lighting needs and electrical usage by maximizing interior natural light. Shade canopies over entry and office components reduce adverse heat gain to the interior environment.

Evan Koplan and Serena Wedlich of CBRE are marketing and leasing the property on behalf of TCC and a fund sponsored by CBRE Investment Management.

"We are excited to deliver the highly desirable industrial product to the Mesa submarket, ideally situated on the Elliot Road Technology Corridor. Trammell Crow Company has once again delivered a best-in-class industrial development with ideal location/visibility, access, design, clear height, power and loading to accommodate a wide range of users in the marketplace," said Evan Koplan, SVP with CBRE. "Our leasing team has been thoughtful in delivering solutions to users who require immediate occupancy and is finalizing construction on spec suites in the remaining buildings at Elliot Gateway. This development has been very well received in the marketplace, including a 186,000-square-foot pre-lease at 9029 E. Peterson Avenue. User demand continues to drive this market, and we look forward to being a viable option for both local and new-to-market companies."

President Joe Biden praised the mayors of Phoenix and Mesa in an address Friday to city leaders from across the country.

More than 200 mayors gathered in Washington, D.C., for a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, a non-partisan group that meets to discuss issues facing municipal governments.

At the end of the four-day event, Biden touted the work his administration has done to advance the country's economy and bring back manufacturing jobs. He said the country was beginning "to invest in ourselves again," thanks to the country's mayors.

He spotlighted Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and the jobs a new semiconductor factory under construction would bring to north Phoenix. The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company facility is scheduled to open its first factory in 2024 and a second in 2026.

"Our economic agenda ignited a manufacturing boom, a semiconductor boom, the battery boom, the electric vehicle boom. ... The mayor of Phoenix, Kate ... I was with her last month to announce a small investment: $40 billion," Biden joked. "Two semiconductor factories and thousands of union workers helping to build them."

Mayor Gallego appreciated the recognition. "It was a real high point to be recognized by President Biden as a city that is doing it right," she said.

Gallego said that throughout the conference she "had many conversations with other mayors about how they can apply to their own cities what we’re doing successfully in Phoenix," like heat mitigation and attracting both big and small businesses.

Biden praised Mesa Mayor John Giles for how the city spent American Rescue Plan Act funds. He highlighted how the program empowered mayors to act swiftly, allowing them to apply to the federal government for funds directly, as opposed to funneling it through state legislatures.

"In Mesa, Arizona, Mayor Giles ... bought five new ambulances, hired behavioral health clinicians to help the fire department in crisis calls," Biden said.

Mesa "is ahead of where other cities are," Giles said about its work on 911 calls related to mental health. "The president's shoutout was justified, frankly. I'm proud of the fact that we are doing what a lot of communities want to do. And they're trying to catch up to us," he said.

Gallego and Giles were two of five Arizona mayors registered for the U.S. Conference of Mayors gathering. Tempe Mayor Corey Woods, Tucson Mayor Regina Romero and Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers also attended.

Gallego spoke on two panels: "Planning, Priorities and Partnerships: Ensuring Public Safety at Large-Scale Events" and "Transforming America With Investments In Broadband, CHIPS, and Science."

Giles spoke on one panel: "The Role of Cities: National Strategy on Food, Nutrition, and Health."

Larry Fitzgerald, Devin Booker bringing professional pickleball to Arizona

Major League Pickleball will hold its first tournament of 2023 in Mesa and will feature a team owned by Arizona sports and music legends.MESA, Ariz. — Major League Pickleball (MLP) will start its new season with a four-day tournament from January 26-29 at Bell Bank Park in Mesa, and one of the teams playing is owned by a group of Arizona sports and music legends including former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgera...

Major League Pickleball will hold its first tournament of 2023 in Mesa and will feature a team owned by Arizona sports and music legends.

MESA, Ariz. — Major League Pickleball (MLP) will start its new season with a four-day tournament from January 26-29 at Bell Bank Park in Mesa, and one of the teams playing is owned by a group of Arizona sports and music legends including former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

12Sports got the chance to catch up with Fitz, who picked up the sport of pickleball as a hobby during the pandemic.

Fitzgerald was not known for talking smack on the football field, but a video posted on social media by Barstool Sports' 'Fore Play' podcast shows that Fitz has a different attitude when playing pickleball.

"People pick fights with me and I just finish them," Fitzgerald said. "You know what I mean? I'm not out here looking for trouble. Like 50 Cent says, I don't want any problems, but if you want a problem, no problem. I got you."

Larry Legend has turned his COVID hobby into a passion and unlike in his football career, stats don't matter.

"I can play with my 6-year-old son," Fitzgerald said. "I'm just hitting the ball back and forth with him, and he can have fun with me, or you can play with your 80-year-old grandmother."

Age also becomes just a number on the court.

"I've played a lot of people," Fitzgerald said. "You look at them and you'll be like, this person, she's old and there's no way she'll be able to move. And the next thing you know, she's got you diving for balls, got you sweating, got your legs hurting, you know, you have no idea."

Business is booming in the sport of pickleball and Fitz is helping bring a Major League Pickleball team to the Valley, the AZ Drive.

The list of owners includes some of Arizona's most famous stars. Joining Larry are Suns star Devin Booker, country music star Dierks Bentley, and the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps.

"Just being the Arizona team, having Arizona territory, I wanted to make sure I was including a collective group of people who really value what Arizona stands for, values the ideals that we all hope Arizona residents would embody," Fitzgerald said.

One legend you won't see with the team is Charles Barkley.

Barkley told 12Sports last weekend that he and Fitz are working together but on the golf course instead of the pickleball court.

The AZ Drive will play in MLP's first tournament of the year at Bell Bank Park in Mesa this weekend. Play begins on January 26 and wraps up on the 29th.

MLP consists of 24 teams divided into two levels, the Premier Level and the Challenger Level.

The teams are co-ed and are made up of two men and two women.

The Premier Level consists of the top 48 pickleball players and the Challenger Level consists of the next 48.

The AZ Drive will open the year in the Challenger Level and will play the first three tournaments, including this weekend's tournament in Mesa, of the year there.

After the first three tournaments, all of the Challenger Level teams will move to the Premier Level and vice versa and the league will re-draft rosters.
