So, when it comes to the most popular wholesale Mediterranean products in Milwaukee,
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 Milwaukee, WI, 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 Milwaukee, WI.
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

— Willie Mays was on hand as his 92nd birthday was celebrated, and Alex Cobb led the San Francisco Giants to a 4-1 victory on Saturday that stretched the Milwaukee Brewers’ losing streak to six.19h - AP

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants lost a significant piece when Brandon Crawford landed on the injured list with a right calf strain earlier this week, but the emergence of two young middle infielders is helping to soften the blow.
Shortstop Thairo Estrada and second baseman Brett Wisely each homered to back a brilliant outing by right-hander Alex Cobb as the Giants beat the Brewers, 4-1, on Saturday evening at Oracle Park, extending their winning streak to four games.
Estrada cranked a two-run blast off Milwaukee right-hander Colin Rea to stake San Francisco to a 3-0 lead in the third inning while Wisely added a solo homer to straightaway center field for his first career Major League home run in the seventh.
It proved to be enough support for Cobb, who fired seven scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 2.01, which ranks seventh-best in the Majors among qualified pitchers. After winning seven of their past eight home games, the Giants (15-17) are now within two games of .500 -- thanks largely to a starting rotation that appears to be hitting its stride.
Over their past 13 games, San Francisco’s starters are 7-1 with a 2.71 ERA, the best mark in the National League.
“That’s going to be the recipe for success for our team,” Cobb said. “If we want to get to where we’re going, it’s going to start with the starting pitching.”
The Giants will also need consistent production from key players like Estrada, who has been an invaluable contributor since coming over from the Yankees in exchange for cash considerations in April 2021. The 27-year-old Venezuelan took a major step forward by establishing himself as an everyday player for San Francisco last year, but he appears poised for an even bigger breakthrough in '23.
Through 31 games this season, Estrada has crushed five home runs and ranks in the top 10 in MLB in hits (41), batting average (.336) and stolen bases (9). He’s already been worth a team-high 1.5 WAR, according to FanGraphs, putting him on pace to easily surpass the 2.7 WAR he recorded in 2022.
“I just think we’re getting to the point where Thairo is one of the best players in baseball,” manager Gabe Kapler said. “Whenever you have a guy that can play up the middle like he does and be the type of offensive performer that he is for us right now, you have to mention him as a guy that’s kind of at the top of the league.”
With Crawford on the mend, Estrada has been filling in as the Giants’ primary shortstop, and he has remained durable despite taking on a heavy workload early this season.
“Thairo’s an animal,” Cobb said. “He just shows up every single day ready to go. He gives an incredible amount of effort in the batter’s box, on defense and on the basepaths. It exhausts me to watch him go through a game. He’s just dirt head-to-toe, pants ripped, getting drilled by pitches. He never complains, never says a word. He just goes out and posts every single day. He’s definitely the heart and soul of the lineup right now.”

Wisely entered Saturday batting 2-for-27 (.074) over his first 13 Major League games, but he’s received more opportunities following the injuries to Crawford and center fielder Mike Yastrzemski, and he’s impressed with his defense up the middle.
The 23-year-old rookie finally got a chance to flash his power in the seventh, driving an 0-1 changeup from Brewers reliever Tyson Miller over the center-field fence for his milestone homer.
“It was probably the best moment of my life,” Wisely said. “Hitting a home run in the big leagues, everyone dreams of that. Having that today was phenomenal.”
Wisely made two eye-opening plays at second base as well, ranging up the middle to make a diving stop on William Contreras’ grounder in the sixth and then easily chasing down Willy Adames’ popup to shallow right field in the eighth.
“It just gives you momentum,” Cobb said. “When you have plays being made like that, you’re not pitching so delicately. You’re not trying to strike everybody out. You feel like the attacker when you have guys with range like that, making plays like that.
“I think we’re playing the best defense we’ve played in a couple of years right now. It just allows us to go deep into the game, and when that happens, we’re just going to be a better baseball team. I think that’s pretty obvious."

The Manitoba Moose (2-3) rematched with the Milwaukee Admirals (3-2) on Saturday evening at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena for Game 5 of the Central Division Semifinals.
Neither side was able to find the back of the net through the opening 20 minutes. Both clubs were granted a chance on the power play, but were unable to break through. Both goaltenders were up to task, with Oskari Salminen ending the frame with 12 stops, while Yaroslav Askarov compiled eight saves of his own.
Milwaukee opened the scoring past the halfway point of the second stanza. A Moose pinch allowed Egor Afanasyev to send Mark Jankowski in on a breakaway. The forward deked past Salminen for his first of the series. The Admirals goal was the lone marker of the frame. Manitoba was given a pair of opportunities on the power play, including a brief five-on-three, but was unable to find twine. The Moose were down 1-0 after 40 minutes and were outshot 13-7.
The Moose were granted chances on the power play in the third, but were unable to find proper shooting lanes. With time ticking down, Salminen was called to the Moose bench in favour of the extra attacker. Manitoba gained possession and Declan Chisholm sauced the puck to Jansen Harkins, who fired a bullet past Askarov to tie the contest 1-1. Milwaukee struck back with 27 seconds left, as a collision between Moose skaters allowed the Admirals to walk in with an odd-man rush before Spencer Statsney sent the puck past Salminen off the backdoor pass. The Moose were unable to manufacture a second equalizer and the horn sounded to draw the series to a close with Milwaukee taking Game 5 by a score of 2-1. Salminen was hit with the loss and ended with 31 stops, while Askarov notched the win with 19 saves of his own.
Moose Defenceman Jimmy Oligny (Click for full interview)
“Seems like we’ve seen this before, it’s getting old. I already have no words, it’s just really disappointing. When you just tie a game, you can’t allow a goal right after. It doesn’t matter when, even if it was in the second period. You just can’t allow a goal right after you scored. I think they were tight games that could have gone either way.”

The Milwaukee Bucks want their postseasons to match the success of their regular seasons.
That pretty much explains why the Bucks opted to fire coach Mike Budenholzer after he led Milwaukee to the NBA’s best record in three of his five seasons on the job. Budenholzer coached the Bucks to their first title in a half-century in 2021 but posted a 4-4 record in playoff series his other four seasons, including this year’s first-round exit.
“From a regular-season perspective, we’ve done some incredible things,” general manager Jon Horst said in a conference call with reporters Friday, one day after Budenholzer’s firing. “And that matters. You care about the regular season. It’s really hard to win an 82-game regular season. It takes a lot to do that. And the playoffs matter an awful lot, too.
“I think ultimately, we just haven’t ended these seasons and these runs and these opportunities to contend in the way that we want or expect. And those expectations have changed over the course of time. So this is an opportunity for us to go forward.”
That opportunity just might lead to the Bucks hiring someone who shares many of Budenholzer’s traits.
Horst said he believes the Bucks made the right hire five years ago when they brought in Budenholzer. He added the team is “where we are today largely because of what Bud’s brought and what we’ve been able to do as a partnership.”
“And now the challenge and task will be to find someone that frankly brings a lot of the same things but also can add to what we have, can bring a different view,” Horst said. “I think that’s where the refocus and reenergize opportunity comes. To look at this team in a different way and look at this opportunity in a different way and hopefully unlock some more potential with this team.”
Budenholzer compiled a 271-120 regular-season record with the Bucks while working with a roster featuring Giannis Antetokounmpo, who earned MVP honors in 2019 and 2020. Budenholzer helped Milwaukee go 58-24 this season to earn the NBA’s top playoff seed before the Bucks’ stunning 4-1 loss to the Miami Heat in the first round.
Horst said the decision to fire Budenholzer was made collectively by the team’s executive group and ownership group rather than from any player request. Horst said players would have a voice in the process, however, as the Bucks select Budenholzer’s replacement.
Antetokounmpo said after the Heat’s series-clinching victory that the Bucks didn’t make enough adjustments in how they guarded Jimmy Butler, who averaged 37.6 points over the five games. Antetokounmpo, who left Game 1 early and missed Games 2 and 3 with a bruised lower back, said he would have liked to defend Butler more.
“This wasn’t a player decision,” Horst said. “This was made at the executive level, ownership group. This is something we talked about collectively and we decided. Relative or specific to Giannis or to any of our players, it wasn’t their decision.”
Horst acknowledged a coaching change alone won’t solve all the Bucks’ issues.
“I have to be better,” Horst said. “I have to make better decisions at an executive level. Our players have to play better. From a performance area, we have to do a better job. So, it’s across the board, this is not a ‘one hire fixes all’-type thing. There’s a lot of things that have to improve.”
Milwaukee’s next coach will inherit a talented but aging roster as the Bucks enter an intriguing offseason.
Brook Lopez, the runner-up to Memphis’ Jaren Jackson Jr. in the NBA defensive player of the year voting, is a free agent. Three-time All-Star Khris Middleton could become a free agent as well if he doesn’t pick up his $40.4 million player option for 2023-24.
The Bucks want to make sure they remain annual contenders as long as they have Antetokounmpo, who has two years plus a 2025-26 player option remaining in the supermax deal he signed in December 2020.
Horst said it was too early in the process to tell how important NBA head coaching experience or any other factor might be in the hiring process.
“We have to make a great hire, and I don’t want to put any boxes around what that will be,” Horst said. “I believe we will have a very attractive position. We have the best player in the world. We have a championship culture and organization. We have great facilities. I think we have great respect around the league. So I think we’ll have a lot options.”
