When it comes to trying new, exciting cuisine, few foods hit the spot like a deliciously fresh Mediterranean meal. However, we know that it can be very difficult to find authentic Mediterranean grocery wholesalers in San Jose, CA. Having lived in metro Atlanta for years, we realized that our customers needed an easy way to find quality wholesale Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food in bulk. That is why we created Nazareth Grocery Mediterranean Market – to give everyone a chance to enjoy tasty, healthy food, desserts, and authentic Mediterranean gifts at wholesale prices.
Founded in 2009, Nazareth Grocery has become one of San Jose’s leading international wholesale grocery stores. We are very proud to serve our customers and do everything in our power to give them the largest selection of high-quality wholesale goods available.
If you’re looking for the freshest, most delicious Middle Eastern wholesale products and ingredients, you will find them here at the best prices in the state. We encourage you to swing by our store in Marietta to see our selection for yourself. We think that you will be impressed!
There is so much more to Mediterranean food than pizza and pasta. The perfect climate combined with delicious foods and amazing wine makes the Mediterranean incredibly irresistible. That’s why our customers absolutely love to buy this kind of cuisine in bulk. Every country in this region has its own set of specialties and delicacies, each with its own flavors and styles of preparation.
Mediterranean countries include:
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 San Jose, 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

Description: The proposed project would demolish the two existing warehouse buildings, totaling 289,330 sf, and construct a 302,772 sf tilt-up warehouse building. The project intends to redevelop the property as a modern industrial facility. While no end users have been identified, the building is programmed and designed to attract users such as logistics, e-commerce, warehouse/distribution, wholesaling, industrial services, and light to medium manufacturing.

New Animals Fly Into the Coop at Happy Hollow’s Double-H Ranch Visitors can now play and learn about the four new Narragansett turkeys and a brand-new, custom-built chicken coop.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (January 20, 2022) – Happy Hollow Park & Zoo is excited to welcome four Narragansett turkeys and a new chicken coop to Double-H Ranch, the Zoo's conservation-focused barn area for endangered and heritage breed domestic animals. The turkeys are named Nquit, Neesse, Nish and Yoh, which translate to one, two, three, and four, respectively, in the native language of the Narragansett people.
“When people think of endangered species, they usually think of wildlife, but there are actually domesticated breeds, like Narragansett turkeys, that are also at risk of extinction,” says Heather Vrzal, Zoo Curator.
Recognized by the American Poultry Association in 1874, the Narragansett turkey is a heritage breed unique to North America and named for Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island. The breed is a cross between the Eastern Wild turkey and domestic turkey.
“Unlike turkeys today, Narragansett turkeys have quite striking plumage,” says Rachel Atkins, Happy Hollow’s Veterinary Technician. “They have beautiful black, gray, tan, and white feathers, a black beard, and a mostly featherless head. And their necks can range in color from red to a blueish white.”
Narragansett turkeys were domesticated for their excellent temperaments and calm disposition as well as being a source of meat and eggs. As an Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited zoo, Happy Hollow ensures their safety and survival through conservation. Narragansett turkey toms can weigh between 22 to 28 pounds, and hens can weigh between 12 to 16 pounds. These birds are also athletic and can run quickly and fly.
Along with this new species, the new coop is designed to look like a miniature version of the nearby barn. All the birds can comfortably live, roost, and lay eggs in the new coop with enough space while zookeepers can easily clean and provide care for the birds. Thanks to the support of Happy Hollow Foundation and the County of Santa Clara, the turkeys will be moving into this new habitat along with Happy Hollow’s current chicken flock.
“The chicken coop was designed with convenience and comfort in mind for both the zookeepers and the birds,” says Amy Pizarro, Happy Hollow Foundation Executive Director. “We are thrilled to support this exciting upgrade for both the avian residents and human caretakers of Double-H Ranch.”
To see the chickens and turkeys in their new home, visit Happy Hollow during current operating hours: Thursday – Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Visit www.happyhollow.org to plan your visit.

SAN JOSE — Bloom Energy has struck a leasing deal that enables a fresh expansion in north San Jose for the creator of cutting-edge green energy technologies, executives said Wednesday.
The green energy company has leased 32,800 square feet, an agreement that allows Bloom Energy to occupy an entire big office building on North First Street that serves as the company’s headquarters, commercial real estate firms CBRE and JLL said.
With the latest leasing agreement, Bloom Energy now occupies 182,700 square feet, which is the entirety of one of the two office buildings in the [email protected] office complex in north San Jose’s Alviso district.
Bloom Energy has launched a growth boom in San Jose and Fremont, according to Carl Guardino, Bloom Energy’s executive vice president for government affairs and policy.
San Jose-based Bloom’s boom runs counter to the dreary narrative espoused by some that a mass exodus of companies seeking to flee California is underway.
“When it comes to decisions about California, some employers may be going, but Bloom Energy is growing,” Guardino said.
The two-building [email protected] tech campus totals 368,700 square feet and is located at 4353 N. First St. and 4453 North First St. Bloom Energy occupies the entire 4353 N. First office site. CBRE Investment Management bought the office complex in 2020.
“We have expanded our headquarters in San Jose and increased our manufacturing footprint in Fremont to further our technology leadership and support the strong demand for our solutions,” Guardino said.
Bloom Energy manufactures and provides clean energy power generators. The company’s fuel cell power generators use natural gas or biogas as fuel.
CBRE brokers Jeff Houston, Rochelle Imani and Vincent Scott, and JLL broker Steve Levere arranged the lease.
“We are pleased to have Bloom Energy as a full-building tenant at [email protected], where we have successfully implemented a robust leasing and management program that is focused on tenant satisfaction and retention,” said Brian Ma, a senior director with CBRE Investment Management.
“Tenant amenities include a fitness center with a yoga studio and several large outdoor collaboration areas, a sought-after feature,” CBRE stated.
CBRE added that it revamped underutilized outdoor areas to create a healthier environment in the office complex.
Outdoor spaces are increasingly being viewed as important amenities in office spaces amid rising health-related concerns while the coronavirus rages on.
The technologies that Bloom Energy has crafted could help ward off some of the effects of catastrophes linked to electricity and energy woes, including deliberate outages known as public safety power shutoffs, company executives said.
“As Bloom Energy empowers our communities and businesses to responsibly take charge of their energy with clean, resilient power, we’re providing critical protection from grid instability for our communities, driven by wildfires, rolling blackouts and PSPS events,” Guardino said.
The demand for the company’s energy products has spurred hiring at Bloom Energy, the company said.
“As the world’s need for reliable and sustainable energy grows, we’re growing careers in engineering, finance and supply chain in our San Jose headquarters and adding more than 300 manufacturing careers throughout Silicon Valley over the next 12 months,” Guardino said.

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Colorado State used solid defense and built the lead steadily in getting a resounding 78-42 win at San Jose State, Saturday afternoon. With the win, the Rams improved to 13-1 overall and 3-1 in the Mountain West on the year, while the Spartans fell to 7-7 and 1-1 in the conference.
After San Jose State opened the game with a three, CSU came back and answered immediately with 10-0 run and never looked back. The Rams played consistently solid defense and led 35-17 at the halftime break. The lead grew to as many as 41 in the second half, as the visitors pulled away for the comfortable victory.
Colorado State finished the game a solid 46.3 percent (31-of-67) from the floor, and held San Jose State to just 27.8 percent (15-of-54) from the field, including 21.9 percent (7-of-32) from three. CSU dominated the glass, 49-31, and gave up just five turnovers on the day. The Rams turned 13 SJSU turnovers into a 15-2 point advantage.
CSU had three in double figures, led by junior Dischon Thomas with 14 points and seven rebounds. Sophomore Isaiah Rivera posted 12 points, while junior Isaiah Stevens has 12. Junior David Roddy has six points, 11 rebounds and six assists in the victory. Overall, CSU had nine players with six or more points in the game. Omari Moore was the only Spartan in double figures with 15.
STAT OF THE GAME • CSU forced San Jose State to a season-low 42 points, with the previous low 45 at No. 8 Texas.
NOTES • This is a series that has had Colorado State on the winning end of all 23 matchups, including all 10 in San Jose. • The 36-point margin was CSU's largest of the year and the largest margin of victory in the series. The previous high in the series was 29 and the previous for the year was 31 against Little Rock. • The six assists was a season-high for Roddy and it was his fifth 10+ rebound game of the year. • Rivera's 12 points were his second double-figure scoring game of the year and third of his career. • This was the fifth game this year that Thomas has scored in double figures this year.
