So, when it comes to the most popular wholesale Mediterranean products in Tulsa,
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 Tulsa, OK, 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 Tulsa, OK.
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

WASHINGTON, D.C. -
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden in 2021, allocated $5 billion over five years to facilitate the buildout of a nationwide network of fast chargers for electric vehicles, as an increasing number of Americans switch to EVs and as the administration encourages less dependence on fossil fuels.
That funding has attracted significant interest, including from businesses in Oklahoma, which is slated to get about $66 million of the NEVI (National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure) funds.
"Really, without public financing, these charging stations really would not get built," said David Jankowsky, founder and CEO of Tulsa-based Francis Energy.
Francis Energy has taken the lead in building EV charging stations in Oklahoma, with a network of 416 chargers (with 832 ports) across 122 locations.
Company officials said 356 of the chargers are Direct-current fast chargers and 60 those are level 2. What's more, the company has projects either completed or under construction in Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Alabama and Arkansas.
"We started building this network in 2019, focused on rural, underserved and Tribal communities," Jankowsky said in an interview this week, "and we proved that concept in 2019."
Jankowsky said the goal now is to expand that concept throughout the heartland, which he said is everywhere between the coastal states.
He and his vice president for government relations, Jason Pitcock, were in Washington this week trying to perhaps get an edge in the competition for the NEVI funds.
"We have received -- and this is really incredible -- just bipartisan support for what we are doing," Jankowsky stated.
Among the members, he said, who have been particularly supportive is Tulsa-area Representative Kevin Hern (R-OK1).
"We’ve met with everybody we can," said Rep. Hern in an interview Thursday, regarding the many Oklahoma groups trying to get in to see him during what is known on the Hill as 'fly-in season.'
Congressman Hern didn't support the infrastructure bill when it came up for a vote because he said it was too anti-fossil fuel. But said what Francis is doing fits right in with Oklahoma's all-of-the-above approach to energy.
"[Oklahoma does] a lot in the world of alternative energies," Hern said, "I think the charging stations that Francis Energy does are something that’s unique to our state...they do a lot of great work."
Jankowsky believes Francis can be the preeminent player in building out the public charging network envisioned by the Biden administration -- with a little help.
"All kinds of public monies have materialized in the last two years, thanks greatly to the administration," Jankowsky said, "and that is what is going enable this network."
The NEVI funds get doled through fiscal year 2026. Jankowski said that means construction of the EV network should be complete around 2028.

The Daniels — Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert — won best director and best original screenplay, and the film also took film editing. The only other movie to come close was "All Quiet on the Western Front" with four wins, while some notable nominees fell short. “Top Gun: Maverick,” which was hailed as the film that got moviegoers back into their seats, won only for sound, while another early favorite, "Elvis," went home without an Oscar. Hosts Bruce Miller and Terry Lipshetz break down the night, discussing the key wins, including Brendan Fraser taking best actor for “The Whale,” some surprises in the music categories, John Travolta's emotional introduction to the in memoriam section that featured Lenny Kravitz, Jimmy Kimmel's hosting efforts, the red ... err ... champagne carpet, the questionable inclusion of "The Little Mermaid" and, of course, Cocaine Bear.

The saga of OKPOP has been a frustrating one. The pop culture museum hit a stalemate last year, putting its future in question even as Oklahomans expressed enthusiasm for the project and celebrities donated personal belongings.
The Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture, located at 422 N. Main St., sits on a prime spot — across from Cain’s Ballroom and within blocks of the Tulsa Theater and the Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan centers. Its shiny gold exterior, inspired by Bob Wills’ guitarist Eldon Shamblin’s Stratocaster, was finished a little more than a year ago.
Since then, the museum has sat half done.
The museum was proposed in 2008 as a place to tell the story of creative Oklahomans and their influence on popular culture around the world. Staff amassed artifacts, photographs, film, music and other media from the state’s top stars and influencers. A broad swath of Oklahomans are represented from the fields of music, art, literature, film, television and sports.
It was envisioned to be a site equal to venues such as Seattle’s MoPOP, Cleveland’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame.
Once OKPOP is complete, the Tulsa Regional Chamber estimates it will add $36.5 million to the local economy annually. It’s a worthy and popular endeavor.
State lawmakers are reluctant to contribute. The state contributed $25 million through a revenue bond issue in 2015 but turned down all other funding requests, including from the American Rescue Plan Act. Even further, the Legislature last session approved $46 million in bonds for the Oklahoma Historical Society — which oversees OKPOP — on the condition that none of it be used on the incomplete museum.
The refusal rankles, considering that the Legislature put $90 million into the First Americans Museum near the state Capitol, plus another $6 million from federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds. It’s an impressive and unique Oklahoma attraction, but OKPOP holds the same potential.
Despite the Tulsa snub, supporters are charging ahead to finish OKPOP. A couple of announcements in recent weeks indicate a corner has been turned.
Most significant is a $30 million capital campaign to complete the museum’s design, construction and installation for a late 2024 opening. The honorary chairperson of the fundraising effort is Oklahoma country music superstar and “The Voice” coach Blake Shelton.
Shelton will be the face of the campaign to bring awareness and encourage others to donate. We have no doubt his influence, charm and advocacy will make a difference. Shelton will be working with OKPOP Foundation Chairman D. Scott Petty of Stillwater and Abby Kurin, managing director of the foundation.
In addition, notable Oklahomans continue contributing artifacts, such as last week’s guitar donation from Journey guitarist Neal Schon. They believe in the potential and the important role OKPOP plays in preservation.
We’re optimistic that OKPOP is moving in the right direction. It’s too bad elected officials have bowed out of support, but Tulsans know a good thing when they see it.

TULSA, OK – Just 24 hours after the Tulsa Drillers opened the 2023 season by allowing just two hits in an opening night, shutout victory over San Antonio, the Missions flipped the script Friday night. In game two of the season, four Missions hurlers limited the Drillers to just one hit, leading San Antonio to a 2-0 victory at ONEOK Field.
After collecting ten hits in their opening victory, the Drillers were held without a hit through the first seven innings of Friday’s loss. Tulsa’s only hit came when Jorbit Vivas led off the eighth with a lined single just over the glove of shortstop Evan Mendoza.
The Missions got the only run they needed when they ran their way to the game’s first run in the top of the fourth. With two outs and the bases empty, Daniel Johnson legged out a bunt base hit, and Luis Aviles Jr. followed with a single that left the runners at first and third. Aviles Jr. attempted to swipe second base, and when Tulsa catcher Carson Taylor threw to second, Johnson broke for home. The San Antonio left fielder easily stole home when Taylor’s throw was low and was unable to be cut off by Tulsa shortstop Eddys Leonard, giving the Missions a 1-0 lead.
They needed only one hit to double their lead in the top of the sixth. Pedro Castellanos singled with one out, and after Johnson grounded out, Drillers reliever Alec Gamboa walked three straight batters to force in a run.
Tulsa starting pitcher Nick Frasso picked up the loss despite allowing just one run in four complete innings. He gave up four hits and did not walk a batter while striking out six.
HIGHLIGHTS AND HAPPENINGS:
*A pair of Drillers left-handed relievers made successful Double-A debuts. Jack Little retired all four batters he faced in the sixth and seventh innings, striking out three of the four. Ben Harris followed him to the mound and gave up a leadoff single in the eighth before retiring three straight batters to record a scoreless inning.
*Tulsa relievers Tanner Dodson and Trevor Bettancourt also threw scoreless innings.
*After Vivas singled, he stole the first base of the season for the Drillers, but he was left stranded at second.
*Andy Pages came close to ending the shutout on the final swing of the game. Pages’ opposite-field drive was caught just in front of the right field fence by Tirso Ornelas to end the game.
*The Drillers and Missions meet again on Saturday night in the third and final game of their season opening series. Starting time is set for 7:05 p.m. at ONEOK Field. The pitching matchup will be:
San Antonio RHP Duncan Snider (6-1, 4.31 ERA in Low-A in 2022)Tulsa RHP River Ryan (2-4, 2.45 ERA in Low and High-A in 2022)

Missions Carry Combined No-Hitter into 8th Inning
SAN ANTONIO – After their opening night loss on Thursday night, the San Antonio Missions faced the Tulsa Drillers for game two of their three-game series. Tulsa shutout the Missions in game one and the Missions returned the favor with a shutout victory of their own in game two. Jackson Wolf tossed five no-hit while the offense provided two runs on six hits. Kevin Kopps, Nolan Watson and CD Pelham finished off the job to get San Antonio their first win of the season.
Nick Frasso, the #10 ranked Dodgers prospect according to MLB Pipeline, got the start for the Drillers. He had to pitch out of a jam in the top of the first inning. With one out in the inning, Connor Hollis hit a single into center field and stole second base. However, Evan Mendoza lined out and Tirso Ornelas flew out to leave Hollis stranded.
Two innings later, the Missions once again threatened to put a run on the board. Jorge Ona was hit by a pitch to start the inning. Michael De La Cruz followed that up with a single to center field. Frasso was able to leave the runners stranded after recording back-to-back strikeouts and a groundout.
The Missions plated their first run of the season in the top of the fourth inning. With two outs in the frame, Daniel Johnson legged out a bunt single. Luis Aviles Jr. hit a single to right field and Johnson advanced to third base. Johnson scored as Aviles Jr. successfully stole second base. A throwing error from catcher Carson Taylor allowed Johnson to reach home. San Antonio took a 1-0 lead.
San Antonio had a chance to increase their lead in the top of the sixth inning. Facing Alec Gamboa, Pedro Castellanos singled with one out. Johnson grounded into a fielder’s choice and advanced to second base on a wild pitch. With two outs, Aviles Jr. and Jorge Ona each drew a walk to load the bases. De La Cruz drew a third walk to allow Johnson to score. Jack Little entered the game to replace Gamboa and struck out Korry Howell to end the inning. San Antonio improved their lead to 2-0.
Jackson Wolf was the starting pitcher for the Missions and Friday marked his third career Double-A start. The 6’7” southpaw proved to be a formidable foe for the Drillers. He allowed a lead-off walk to Jonny DeLuca before retiring the next 17 batters in order. He struck out four batters along the way and lasted five innings before handing the ball off to Kevin Kopps.
Kopps retired all three batters he faced in the sixth inning but had a tougher time in the seventh. Kopps began the inning by hitting DeLuca with a pitch. Two batters later, he issued a walk to Andy Pages. The right-hander recovered by striking out the next batter and then inducing a ground out to end the inning.
The Missions aimed to improve their lead in the top of the eighth inning. Facing Ben Harris, Pedro Castellanos singled to start the inning and advanced to second on a wild pitch. A groundout from Johnson moved him to third base with one out. Harris struck out Aviles Jr. and Ona to end the inning.
Nolan Watson took over for the Missions in the bottom of the eighth inning. On the first pitch of the at-bat, Jorbit Vivas hit a line drive into left field for Tulsa’s first hit of the game. After striking out the next batter, Vivas stole second base and put himself in scoring position. The next two batters flew out to end the scoring threat.
CD Pelham entered the game in the ninth inning for the save attempt. The veteran left-hander retired all three batters he faced to convert the save.
The San Antonio Missions will wrap-up their three-game series against the Tulsa Drillers on Saturday, April 8th. Right-hander Duncan Snider is scheduled to pitch for the Missions. Right-hander River Ryan is scheduled to pitch for the Drillers. First pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m. from ONEOK Field.
San Antonio’s home opener will be on Tuesday, April 11th against the Frisco RoughRiders. First pitch is expected at 7:05 p.m.
