So, when it comes to the most popular wholesale Mediterranean products in Sacramento,
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 Sacramento, CA, 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 Sacramento, CA.
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

(KTXL) — Sacramento is a dog-friendly town with many dog parks throughout the city.
When taking your furry friends for a walk, the city of Sacramento and Sacramento County have regulations for keeping your dog on a lease.
In both the city of Sacramento and Sacramento County, laws say dogs must be restrained and if you’re caught with your dog without a leash, you could be fined.
Here are the dog leash rules in Sacramento County and the city of Sacramento.
Dogs must be kept on a leash in Sacramento County unless an area is designated as being an off-leash area, Bradshaw Animal Shelter spokesperson Luna Anona told FOX40 News in an email.
If an owner doesn’t have a leash for dog, animal control officers are equipped with spare leashes to give to owners in those situations, Anona said.
Whenever an officer sees a dog owner with an off-leash dog, they will request to leash their dog, offered them a spare and educate the owner about leash laws.
If that owner refuses, the dog is considered a “dog at large” and officers have the ability to issue a citation of a $50, Anona said.
Leashes shouldn’t exceed than eight feet in length, Anona said.
Dogs are not allowed to be “at large” in the city of Sacramento, meaning a dog not being restrained by a leash, Front Street Animal spokesperson Ryan Hinderman told FOX40 News in an email.
In the city of Sacramento, leashes should not exceed eight feet in length and have “sufficient strength to restrain the dog should it try to run from the owner or keeper,” according to the city’s law.
According to the city, a dog is considered “at large” in the following situations:
•When it is off the premises of its owner, not under restraint by leash, tether or adequate enclosure
•When it is on the premises of its owner and not restrained by leash, tether, fence or adequate enclosure, or not under control and in the immediate presence of the owner
“In terms of consequences, this could range anywhere from a written warning letter to a $500 fine depending on the situation and prior history of infractions,” Hinderman said.
There are multiple off-leash dog parks in the city of Sacramento, as they’re all fenced with a double-gate system for safety.
Tap here to see a list of off-leash dog parks.
Before you visit a dog park in Sacramento, are the rules you must follow, according to the city’s website:
•Dog owners/handlers are personally and legally responsible for their animals
•Dogs may be off a leash only within the designated fenced area
•Dogs must have current licence, license must be on dogs’ collar, the collar must on the dog
•Aggressive dogs are not allowed. The owner/handler of any dog exhibiting aggressive or unruly behavior are required to immediately remove the offending animal
•For every two dogs brought to the park, there must be at least one owner/handler
•Children less than 14 must be accompanied by an adult
•Female dogs in season are not allowed at the facility

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – For the Sacramento River Cats, it was better late than never on Thursday night at Sutter Health Park. After being blanked through the first seven innings and trailing 5-0 going into the eighth, Sacramento rallied for five runs in the eighth and, when they were trailing 6-5, two in the bottom of the ninth on a Colton Welker game-winning single to stun the Las Vegas Aviators in a 7-6 come-from-behind victory.
The Aviators opened the scoring with a run in the first on a sacrifice fly by Cody Thomas and added two more in the second on a two-out, two-run double by Tyler Soderstrom to take a 3-0 lead. The first three Las Vegas runs were allowed by River Cats starter Drew Strotman, who went three innings and allowed eight hits while striking out three.
Kade McClure took over in the fourth for Sacramento and allowed a two-out, two-run homer to Thomas in his first inning that extended the Aviators lead to 5-0. McClure went on to toss three scoreless frames after the fourth and allowed two hits while striking out two.
Aviators starter Hogan Harris went five scoreless innings and worked around a jam in the fifth where the River Cats had runners at second and third with nobody out. Harris allowed three hits while walking four and striking out three as he was rendered a no-decision.
Colin Peluse took over for Las Vegas in the sixth and worked out of a bases loaded jam with one out in his lone inning of relief, and Garrett Acton set the side down in order in the seventh.
Chad Smith came on to start the bottom of the eighth and the River Cats would load the bases with one out for Welker, who hit a two-run single to center to get Sacramento on the board. Matt Beaty came up next as a pinch-hitter and doubled to left-center to drive in another run to make it 5-3. After Will Wilson struck out, Heliot Ramos came up with two in scoring position and two outs and delivered a two-run game-tying single to left.
The Aviators pushed across the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth facing Joey Marciano (2-1). With runners at the corners and one out, Trenton Brooks laid down a bunt to the right side of the infield to get Thomas in from third base and give the Aviators a 6-5 lead.
Billy Sullivan (2-2), who was on to record the final out of the eighth, came back out for the ninth and Darin Ruf led off with a single, his only hit of the night in his rehab assignment. Two batters later, Clint Coulter was hit by a pitch to put the winning run aboard. After Patrick Bailey struck out for the second out, Tyler Fitzgerald put together an impressive at-bat and drew a walk to load the bases, setting the stage for Welker who grounded a single through the right side on a 2-2 pitch to give the River Cats their first walk-off win of the season.
Marciano was credited with the victory for Sacramento while Sullivan suffered the loss.
The River Cats and Aviators play the fourth game of their series on Friday night at Sutter Health Park. Sean Hjelle (0-0, 0.00 ERA) returns to Sacramento and makes the start for the River Cats, opposed by right-hander Zach Neal (0-0, 5.68 ERA) for Las Vegas. First pitch is set for 6:45 p.m. PDT.

Huddersfield Town secured their Championship status for the 2023-24 season on Thursday night when they defeated Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United at the John Smith's Stadium.
A second half Danny Ward strike was enough to defeat the Blades and complete the great escape, with Neil Warnock masterminding yet another turn-around after he replaced Mark Fotheringham in the dugout back in February.
There is set to be a new era at the Terriers though in more ways than one this summer, and not just because Warnock will be slumping back off to his semi-retirement.
As well as a new manager, Huddersfield will have new ownership as American businessman Kevin Nagle looks to finalise his takeover.
The club confirmed in March that a North American consortium had agreed to a full purchase of Huddersfield after ex-chairman Dean Hoyle took control of Phil Hodgkinson's stake in the club, but things are yet to be completed.
However, there appears to be no issues involved in the deal and Nagle, who was a former minority owner of NBA franchise Sacramento Kings, tweeted his congratulations to the club on survival.
And per a report from Alan Nixon on Patreon, Nagle is looking to appoint someone with experience of English football to the role of chief executive when he gains control of the club in the form of Paul Buckle.
Buckle is no stranger to English football, having managed a whole host of clubs during his career.
Playing in the EFL for clubs such as Colchester United in his on-field days, Buckle first managed Torquay United between 2007 and 2011 before moving on to Bristol Rovers, whilst also managing Luton Town and Cheltenham.
The appointment of Buckle makes sense for Nagle as he worked at his very own Sacramento Republic of the USL Championship in America.
Buckle was both the head coach and technical director at Republic between 2015 and 2019, having previously already worked in America between his stints at Luton and Cheltenham at Metropolitan Oval - an affiliate of New York City FC.
Departing Sacramento in January 2019, Buckle worked with Southampton's academy for a year in a coaching capacity before returning to the USA, where he has worked as a technical advisor for both Hartford Athletic and the San Diego Loyal, both divisional rivals of Sacramento Republic.
Buckle will now seemingly return to England though when Nagle gets the seal of approval from the EFL to steer the ship at the Terriers.

Decisions by governors, legislators and bureaucrats have consequences, some intended and some not.
Were politics a rational exercise, decision-makers would fully explore potential effects before acting, thereby minimizing chances that what they have wrought would backfire.
However, politics and politicians tend to act in the here and now, rather than worry about what might happen in the future when their decrees collide with the real world.
Examples of short-term decisions that have turned sour abound. One obvious one is California’s ill-starred bullet train project, which has limped along year after year, and still lacks enough money even to complete one initial segment, much less a complete financial plan.
If we had known then what we know now, would voters, governors and legislators have so willingly begun a project that seems to exist merely to exist, but serves no discernible purpose?
Several other notions kicking around the Capitol currently could use some critical thinking about potential consequences.
One is that California should pay reparations to its Black residents for many decades of discrimination and repression. A task force created to study the issue has pegged potential damages as much as $1.2 million per person, although it has not yet said how much should actually be paid.
“Rather, it is an economically conservative initial assessment of what losses, at a minimum, the state of California caused or could have prevented, but did not,” a task force report states. “The Legislature would then have to decide how to translate loss-estimates into proposed reparations amounts.”
No one should question that Black Californians have been ill-treated in many ways, but even if awarded cash, would claims for reparations end there?
Latinos suffered many of the same indignities and economic damages and might easily make similar claims.
What about California’s Native Americans? They were enslaved and hunted down during the state’s first decades, with bounties to encourage more killing. Couldn’t today’s descendants claim reparations for genocide?
Another issue being floated in the Capitol these days is a constitutional amendment to make housing a civil right.
Advocates say Assembly Constitutional Amendment 10 is needed to spur greater efforts by officeholders to end California’s housing shortage. Were ACA 10 to be enacted, it would give advocates for the poor and others who lack adequate housing a legal basis for suing state and local governments.
However, governments cannot, by themselves, end the housing shortage. At best they can finance a relative few housing units but must rely on private investment to build the millions of additional units the state needs. Making housing a constitutional right would be virtue-signaling that raises expectations with no real world benefit.
A third example of something needing more objective analysis is a bill that purports to raise salaries of teachers and other education workers by 50% in seven years by increasing the state aid that school districts receive.
If enacted, it would be another bullet train – making promises about doing something wonderful in the future without laying out how it will be financed. One would think politicians would have learned by now the folly of making such open-ended, detail-free commitments.
Finally, there are directives from the Air Resources Board to end sales of gasoline- and diesel-fueled vehicles, including large trucks, in the not-to-distant future. However, no one has laid out how, as a practical matter, it can be done, given the current state of technology and lack of firm plans to increase electrical energy supplies, charging stations and the other services and devices such a transition would require.
An old adage, “Look before you leap,” could be applied to all of these issues.

Preview: The Detroit Tigers (50-81) take on the Kansas City Royals (53-79)
Two Major League rehabbers, Bryce Johnson and Darin Ruf, hit back-to-back doubles to open the bottom of the first with Ruf driving in Johnson to give the River Cats a 1-0 lead. Ruf would go on to score on a wild pitch with two outs to make it a 2-0 advantage.
Sacramento doubled its lead in the third as Shane Matheny homered to start the frame and Patrick Bailey added a two-out RBI single to make it 4-0.
Harrison, meanwhile, was in the midst of his best outing of the season. Harrison allowed a one-out single to Conner Capel in the fourth and quickly erased it on an inning-ending double-play to close out his outing. The left-hander went four scoreless frames and struck out seven without issuing a walk.
The River Cats added to their lead in the fifth on a Matt Beaty RBI single while a second run scored on a throwing error by first baseman Tyler Soderstrom. Those were the final runs allowed by Aviators starter Colton Eastman (0-4), who suffered the loss after allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits while striking out seven.
Sacramento added its final three runs in the sixth facing Norge Ruiz, who gave up RBI singles to Will Wilson and Casey Schmitt.
The Aviators scored two runs in the sixth off River Cats reliever Erik Miller and added a run in the ninth off Nick Avila. Daniel Tillo (1-2), who pitched a scoreless seventh and eighth, was credited with the win for Sacramento.
The River Cats and Aviators close out their series on Sunday afternoon at Sutter Health Park with first pitch set for 1:05 p.m. PDT as Sacramento aims for a fifth straight win.
