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 San Francisco, 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!

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 San Francisco, CA

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 San Francisco, CA.

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.

Next Atmospheric River Heading For Bay Area: More Flooding Expected

Upcoming storm forecast for Wednesday into Thursday is likely to bring additional flooding and mudslides, NWS says.

SAN FRANCISCO — With another storm ready to blast the Bay Area on Wednesday and Thursday, crews are still clearing roads and cleaning up debris following record rainfall that fell on New Year's Eve, officials said.

Recovery efforts are focused on making streets passable and while some work will only take days, in some instances it could be weeks before roadways are fully opened, something that could be hampered by the upcoming pineapple express-fueled storm expected to hit the Bay Area Wednesday and Thursday.

While only light rain is forecast for Tuesday, the storm moving ashore Wednesday is likely to be as powerful or more so than the New Year’s Eve Storm, the National Weather Service said, adding that it expects similar impacts on the area. Soils already saturated by last weekend's downpours will only intensify the new storm's impacts, forecasters said.

One meteorologist even went so far as to say the storm could "likely result in the loss of human life.”

According to the article “Forecasters say mild weather Tuesday only the calm before major storm Wednesday” by Austin Turner of the East Bay Times, officials warned Bay Area residents to use Tuesday as a preparation day for a brutal storm

“To put it simply, this will likely be one of the most impactful systems on a widespread scale that this meteorologist has seen in a long while,” a National Weather Service report said Monday evening. “The impacts will include widespread flooding, roads washing out, hillsides collapsing, trees down, widespread power outages, immediate disruption to commerce, and the worst of all, likely loss of human life.

“This is truly a brutal system that we are looking at and needs to be taken seriously.”

NWS meteorologists told the East Bay Times Tuesday morning that while the upcoming storm could perhaps yield a little less rain than the New Year’s Eve weather event, vicious winds could create havoc throughout the region.

“If you were impacted by the New Year’s Eve storm, meaning if your property was flooded, there’s a good likelihood that the same creeks and streams that responded last time respond this time,” said NWS meteorologist Ryan Walbrun.

The NWS advised residents to make sure vehicles were gassed up in case of evacuation mandates, cell phones were charged, emergency alerts were activated and to prepare for potential power outages.

Bay Area residents looking for sandbags can still find them at numerous places, some sites do require residents to fill their own and proof of residency is required at most locations.

Several cities throughout Alameda County provide free sandbag pickups for local residents.

Alameda County also has sites for residents in unincorporated areas to take up to four sandbags for free.

The Santa Clara Valley Water District provides five sandbag distribution sites offering filled bags, free of charge, 24 hours a day from November through April.

20 other Santa Clara Valley Water District sites offer unfilled sandbags with sand for residents to shovel in themselves, according to an article published by the East Bay Times. The agency recommends people take their own shovels to those sites, as well as assistance for hauling the heavy bags. Some sites require proof of residency.

The City of Sunnyvale is also offering self-serve sandbags from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m, Monday through Friday at the City’s Corporation Yard at 221 Commercial St.

San Mateo County also has four locations in which residents of unincorporated San Mateo Countycan pick up no more than 15 pre-filled sandbags:

Cars Half Submerged as San Francisco Hit With Flooding Amid 'Extreme' Storm

Photos of cars submerged in San Francisco circulated online Saturday afternoon after the city was hit with flooding caused by "extreme" weather conditions.

The "extreme" weather included heavy rain, snow, and wind hitting different parts of California on Saturday and causing flooding and landslides after another "atmospheric river" struck the West coast, The New York Times reported.

The storm in San Francisco broke a 173-year old precipitation record, according to the National Weather Service, KRON4 reported. The highest precipitation record was 2.12 inches of rain that happened in 1849. San Francisco saw 2.96 inches of rain, as of late Saturday morning, with more to come.

Twitter user Doug Lawrence posted an 8-second video of multiple cars parked under the rainfall with some submerged due to flooding.

"From drought to mini flood in San Francisco. We had 3.3"+ of rain in the last 24 hours," Lawrence wrote.

Meanwhile, the San Francisco Fire Department announced on Twitter that all lanes of Highway 101 at Oyster Point in the south part of the city were shut down because of "extreme roadway flooding."

The San Francisco Fire Department told Newsweek that there were no injuries or fatalities so far, and that "dozens" of areas were affected and "dozens" of cars were stuck because of the flooding.

Some videos showed drivers struggling to drive their cars as the highway was flooded with rain. Bloomberg News reporter Mark Chediak said the 101 had "serious flooding."

Mark Andrews, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) spokesperson said that high tides might have been a contributor to the flooding, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Flooding also happened in the city of Palo Alto near Pardee Park, according to Raj Mathai, a news anchor at NBC-owned KNTV.

The powerful "atmospheric river" causing San Francisco's weather conditions is often called "pineapple express" because it quickly transfers water vapor from Hawaii to the West coast, according to The Chronicle.

Flood watches and wind advisories are still in place amid heavy rainfall along the coast and as snow covers the Sierra Nevada Mountains, according to the National Weather Service.

Weather forecasters expected heavy snow to fall this weekend in areas around Lake Tahoe, in eastern California and western Nevada. The National Weather Service recently warned that California's Eastern Sierra region, which makes up the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range, would see "showers, heavy snow, and slight chance of thunderstorms" Saturday morning and then rain and heavy snow in the afternoon.

Bay Area Braces For More Extreme Weather After Historic Storm

Another atmospheric river predicted to arrive later this week is expected to match Saturday's historic drenching.

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA —Less than 48 hours after experiencing a historic drenching, the Bay Area is already bracing for another storm that could pack an even bigger wallop, the National Weather Service said.

Another atmospheric river-fueled storm projected to arrive as soon as Wednesday and into Thursday has already prompted an NWS alert for the possibility of widespread flooding and debris flow in burn scar areas.

Saturday’s storm unloaded 5.44 inches of rain in San Francisco, nearly eclipsing a record of 5.54 inches (Nov. 5, 1994) and causing widespread flooding that prompted the closure of a major freeway in the Peninsula along with untold property damage.

The Bay Area woke up to light to moderate rain Monday after enjoying a brief respite from a series of storms under mostly sunny skies on New Year's Day.

Colin McCarthy, a UC Davis atmospheric science student who reports on the weather on his viral @US_Stormwatch Twitter account, believes the precipitation the region desperately needs could be problematic for some areas.

“The storm parade is far from over for California, with 3 more atmospheric rivers set to slam the state over the next 10 days,” McCarthy tweeted.

“Starting to get concerned about more widespread severe flooding potential in NorCal as rainfall amounts of 6-12+ inches would cause serious issues.”

Climate scientist Daniel Swain echoed McCarthy’s concerns, noting the storm’s potential intensity is a concern.

“My main concern, right now, is portion of this that will fall rather quickly over 6-8 hour period on Wed as another strong storm makes landfall,” Swain said in a reply to McCarthy’s tweet.

“There will be pretty high potential for flooding, including some serious/life-threatening flooding, across broad swath of NorCal. #CAwx

‘Brutal System': Entire Bay Area Under Flood Watch for Incoming Storm

The entire Bay Area will be under a flood watch beginning Wednesday due to a heavy storm system expected to be as bad or worse than Saturday's deluge and which will likely result in the loss of human life, according to a dire forecast update from the National Weather Service.

The update issued Monday afternoon includes five key points, with the first one noting a "threat to life likely during this storm." Mudslides are anticipated due to saturated soil, and rapidly rising creeks and streams will pose additional dangers.

A meteorologist shared the following observations in the forecast about the coming storm: "To put it simply, this will likely be one of the most impactful systems on a widespread scale that this meteorologist has seen in a long while. The impacts will include widespread flooding, roads washing out, hillside collapsing, trees down (potentially full groves), widespread power outages, immediate disruption to commerce, and the worst of all, likely loss of human life. This is truly a brutal system that we are looking at and needs to be taken seriously."

The forecast includes an updated threat matrix it classifies as "extreme risk" for conditions expected Wednesday and Thursday, including increased wind gusts, a flood watch that now includes the entire Bay Area and an added forecast Friday through Sunday after the big storm for roughly 1-2 inches of rain in most areas.

Wednesday through Thursday morning will be the worst of the storm, with heavy rain and strong winds, with gusts of 35-55 mph in most areas and stronger gusts at higher elevations.

The flood watch will be in effect from Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon, with rain amounts expected from 2-4 inches in the valleys, 3-6 inches in the foothills and 8-10 inches in the coastal mountains.

The updated forecast includes increased rain totals for several areas from the previous forecast issued Sunday:

Two areas on the coast south of San Francisco may see slightly less rain than first forecast. The revised forecast is for 2-3 inches of rain in Half Moon Bay -- down from 3-4 inches -- and for 3-4 inches in Santa Cruz instead of 4-6 inches in the previous forecast.

Tuesday is expected to have little to no rain for the region and represents the last opportunity to clean up from Saturday's storm before the next one hits, forecasters said.
