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 Raleigh, NC, 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 Raleigh, NC

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 Raleigh, NC.

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.

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.

RALEIGH, N.C. — Get ready for the coldest Christmas in decades -- and a cold week leading up to the holiday.

Low temperatures early Monday morning were well below freezing, ranging from the low 20s in Roxboro to upper 20s around Fayetteville.

Highs on Monday will be in the upper 40s to near 50. It'll be mostly sunny in the morning, but we'll see clouds increasing in the afternoon.

Tuesday will remain cloudy, and temperatures will get just a bit cooler.

The week ahead will feature highs in the mid to upper 40s.

It will be a fairly dry and sunny stretch, although rain is in the forecast beginning Wednesday night and Thursday. By Friday, we could see some flurries in the Triangle, although accumulation is unlikely.

"Expect rain on and off Thursday into Friday," WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said. "As the cold air dives in behind an arctic cold front on Friday, we could briefly see a few flurries in the morning or early afternoon. We're not expecting any accumulation here in central North Carolina."

Any flurries spotted in the Triangle will switch over very quickly to rain, meteorologists said.

Lows will drop into the low 20s next weekend, and highs will be in the low 30s -- near freezing -- so it could be the coldest Christmas morning in decades, according to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. We expect highs to only reach the 30s on Christmas Eve and Christmas.

The coldest Christmases in recent history were 19 degrees in 1983 and 32 degrees in 1989. Although we probably won't see snow this Christmas, it will definitely be cold enough.

You can help kids get warm during the cold weather by contributing to WRAL's Coats for the Children.

Why is there a snow icon on the 7-day forecast?

Seeing a snowflake on your seven-day forecast? That doesn't necessarily mean it will snow for Christmas.

The odds may be slightly higher than the historical probability of snow in Raleigh (just 2%), but trends aren’t favorable for snow lovers.

It will certainly be cold enough for snow, but those cold temperatures have to line up with rain chances -- which is why we could see flurries on Thursday or Friday.

What about snow over Christmas weekend?

The European model has been more consistent over the past few days in keeping central N.C. mostly snow-free through Christmas.

The American model, which previously showed a better chance for snow in Raleigh, has backed off on snow chances in a few consecutive runs.

"While the odds for accumulating snow are trending lower, models are still showing the potential for a few brief flurries mixing in on the back side of this system on Friday. Typically cold air chasing moisture doesn’t produce much, but a few flurries leading up to the holidays may be enough to make a snow lover smile," WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell said.

11 Exceptional Barbecue Spots in the Triangle

Barbecue in the Triangle is as varied as the region’s population itself. Sure there’s traditional Carolina style, but there’s also Texas style, Lexington style, Latin style, and more. There are down-home family joints and more modern, upscale establishments. Some are smoking whole hogs while others are cooking with cuts. There are smoked turkeys, chickens, and plenty of ribs and brisket for those who need a break from the pig.Let’s get the controversy out of the way— asking a North Carolinian, “What...

There are down-home family joints and more modern, upscale establishments. Some are smoking whole hogs while others are cooking with cuts. There are smoked turkeys, chickens, and plenty of ribs and brisket for those who need a break from the pig.

Let’s get the controversy out of the way— asking a North Carolinian, “What’s the best barbecue?” is bound to stir up some strong feelings. These 11 restaurants represent some of the best, and most innovative, barbecue the Triangle has to offer, but by no means does that mean there aren’t other favorites out there too. Either way, it’s hard to go wrong at any of these, so grab some napkins, get those sleeves rolled up, and dive into some divine ‘cue.

Picnic offers locally sourced whole hog barbecue alongside an expansive menu of Southern classics like a fried catfish sandwich, deviled eggs, Brunswick stew, and more. The menu often changes with new specials and homemade desserts making star appearances — keep an eye out for the Picnic burger. A full bar serves beer, wine, and cocktails, with catering and takeout also available.

Family-run Bullock’s has been a Durham institution since 1940, with faded framed photographs of celebrities and sports stars dotting the window, a pay-at-the-front system, and cafeteria-style service in the dining room. Expect to find barbecue joint staples like pulled pork, fried chicken, collards, mac and cheese, and more, alongside more eclectic offerings (for a North Carolina barbecue shop) like Maryland-style crab cakes, chicken parmesan, and quesadillas.

The only place in Chapel Hill currently offering whole hog barbecue, the Pig serves classic ‘cue with some updates. There’s Eastern-style pork barbecue, of course, but also pork cheek served banh mi-style, pork tongue tacos, and fried bologna sandwiches with the bologna made in-house. For a barbecue restaurant, there’s also a surprising number of vegetarian options, and it recently opened the Piggyback Bar behind the main shop, serving beer, wine, cocktails, and an abbreviated bar snacks menu.

Chef Jake Wood and his team at Lawrence Barbecue quickly built a reputation for slinging some of the Triangle’s most innovative meats. The menu changes frequently, but there’s always pulled pork, brisket, and smoked turkey alongside sides like mac and cheese (with Voodoo chip topping), slaw, and fries. The smoked birria tacos were so popular when the restaurant opened that Wood had to remove them from the menu and will open an entirely separate taco spot next door. Get there early and expect a line — when the meats sell out for the day, that’s it.

In 2021, Southern Living Magazine named Backyard BBQ Pit one of the South’s most legendary barbecue joints, and the legions of fans who continue to flock to this South Durham staple would agree. The menu is focused on the meats — pork, turkey, beef brisket, chicken, ribs, and fish. Plates, platters, and sandwiches are all available, as are more than a dozen sides. Soul food aficionados will appreciate deep cuts like the pork feet and the fried whiting.

Since opening in Raleigh less than a year ago, Lechon Latin BBQ has injected new excitement into the Triangle’s barbecue scene. It certainly isn’t the first to introduce Latin barbecue traditions to the Triangle, but it is one of the only ones with such a dedicated focus to the craft. The menu includes pernil, Cuban sandwiches, salchipapas (fries topped with smoked Argentine sausage), empanadas, tacos, Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken, and more.

The Raleigh outpost of the award-winning Redneck BBQ Lab in Benson, North Carolina, offers much of the same as the original location without the 40 minute drive. There’s smoked pulled pork, brisket, and turkey, of course, but also weekly rotating specials like massive bone-in smoked pork chops. The new location will also serve beer and has plans to offer brunch as well.

After closing the iconic Chapel Hill location, the Allen family licensed the Pittsboro location of Allen & Son to be run by the folks behind Sanford’s Stubbs & Son Barbecue. The menu remains fairly similar, with a focus on sandwiches or plates of wood-smoked pulled pork, fried catfish, and burgers, alongside plenty of classic house sides.

Since 1938, Clyde Cooper’s has been downtown Raleigh’s go-to for barbecue. The Eastern-style pork comes chopped or pulled, and there’s also chopped chicken and beef brisket. The Brunswick stew is so popular that it can be ordered by the gallon, and for something different, it has a special dog on the menu — chopped pork barbecue topped with a sausage dog and slaw.

Sam Jones is one of America’s most foremost pitmasters, and for years fans had to make the trek east to Winterville, North Carolina, to get a taste of his award-winning barbecue. Luckily Jones and his team opened a Raleigh location that serves much of the same menu, with some twists for the big city folk. Go-tos include the Jones family barbecue tray (smoked pulled pork, a piece of Skylight Inn-style cornbread, and a side) and the Jones family chicken tray (choice of white or dark meat slow-smoked chicken quarter, choice of bread, and a side). There’s also fried catfish bites, pork skins, and pimento cheese, with plenty of sides and salads.

It’s hard to beat the combination of beer and barbecue, so the folks at Aviator Brewing decided to open a smokehouse. Pair Aviator’s brews with wood-smoked pulled pork, St. Louis-style ribs, brisket, chicken, or smoked meatloaf. The Piggy Mac Skillet, a popular menu item, is smoked pulled pork layered in a cast iron skillet with cheddar mac and cheese, chives, bacon, and Aviator BBQ sauce.

Duke Energy is sorry it ruined your Christmas

Duke Energy apologized Tuesday for intentio...

Duke Energy apologized Tuesday for intentionally shutting off power for nearly half a million North Carolina homes and businesses on Christmas Eve.

But company leaders maintained that they "made the only decision” they could in implementing rolling blackouts and said they will do all they can to prevent something similar from happening again.

The latest: Duke Energy executives went before the N.C. Utilities Commission to explain what led to the longer-than-anticipated blackouts over the holidays: strong winds and a historic temperature drop, poor forecasting of customer demand, and equipment malfunctions.

Why it matters: The sudden blackouts left North Carolinians in the cold as temperatures dropped below freezing, sparking concerns about the reliability of the state's power system with extreme weather events on the rise.

What happened: Duke explained it uses a model that forecasts demand based on historic usage and past weather. On Dec. 23, it thought it had sufficient resources for Christmas Eve. But that night, demand started rising faster than predicted.

Three stations — in Roxboro Plant in Semora, Dan River Steam Station in Rockingham County and Mayo Plant in Roxboro — were operating at less than their power capacity because of freezings. Duke attempted to purchase power from other utilities like it does during warmer months, but they were also impacted by the winter storm.

By the numbers: Some 50,000 homes and businesses were without power in the Triangle on Dec. 23.

Between the lines: Duke Energy acknowledged its communication was not entirely accurate or steady throughout the day.

What's next: Duke Energy said it is internally reviewing its systems and procedures and is looking at how other providers managed during the winter storm.

What they're saying: "We own what happened," said Julie Janson, CEO of Duke Energy Carolinas. "We have set out on a path to ensure that if we're faced with similar challenges, we will see a different outcome and provide a better customer experience."

NC State embracing possible Quad 1 opportunity with No. 16 Duke in town

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – It’s not just No. 16 Duke University coming to PNC Arena on Wednesday night. An opportunity is also presenting itself for the Wolfpack.

If North Carolina State University can knock off the Blue Devils, it would earn its first ranked win of the season — and its first win over a Quadrant 1 team — a necessity for those with NCAA Tournament aspirations.

“It’s about quad opportunities (getting in the NCAA Tournament),” N.C. State Head Coach Kevin Keatts said. “We have a good Duke team coming in that I think will be a Quad 1 opportunity. I think our guys are looking forward to that and embracing the opportunity of playing an ACC team at home.”

Wednesday’s matchup will feature the Atlantic Coastal Conference’s second-ranked scoring offense against the conference’s second-ranked scoring defense. N.C. State is averaging 80.6 points per game while Duke is allowing just 60.4 and holding opponents to just 40.4 percent shooting.

“I feel like it will be a good backcourt on both sides,” sophomore guard Terquavion Smith said. “I’m going to go at their guards and I’m going to go hard all game.”

In their lone meeting last season at Cameron Indoor Stadium, Smith had 19 points while going 1-for-9 from three-point range in the 88-73 loss to then-No. 8 Duke.

Duke enters Wednesday’s contest with two major advantages over the Wolfpack: its depth and size.

The Blue Devils go nine deep in their rotation with only one player, captain Jeremy Roach, averaging more than 30 minutes per game.

N.C. State, on the other hand, has three players averaging more than 30 minutes per game and a much smaller rotation, in part due to center Dusan Mahorcic being sidelined after dislocating his right patella earlier this year.

“They have great depth,” Keatts said. “What they’ve been able to do is they’ve got a two-headed monster at the five position, and they can go two deep at every position.”

There are not many teams in the country that can top, pun intended, the Blue Devils size-wise either. Duke has a 6-foot-7 small forward in true-freshman Dariq Whitehead, and two seven-footers at the four and five, in freshmen Kyle Filipowski and Dereck Lively II.

“Because they’re bigger I think our physicality is that much (more) important to this game,” Morsell said. “Keeping them off the glass and matching their physicality are the major keys.”

Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Keatts is 2-4 all-time against Duke while at N.C. State with both wins coming at PNC Arena.
