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 Washington, DC, 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.

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 Washington, DC.

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.

Benefits of Eating a Mediterranean Diet

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.

Try these tips:

Try these tips

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.

Knights of Columbus Donate 70 Wheelchairs to Veterans

The DC Knights of Columbus delivered the freedom of movement to Veterans receiving care at the Washington DC VA Medical Center on Sept. 15, 2022, through a donation of 70 wheelchairs.

The donation was originally scheduled to be delivered last November, but the pandemic’s impact on the shipping industry held them up. To ensure the wheelchairs arrived in time for the Sept. 15 delivery date, the DC Knights rented a truck and drove to New York City to pick them up personally.

“We left for New York at about 6 a.m. and didn’t make it back to DC until midnight on the day the delivery was due to the VA,” said the DC Knights of Columbus, President of Charities, George Hanna. “It was a long day but that is how dedicated we are to supporting our Veterans and those who care for them.”

The DC Knights of Columbus have a long history of supporting Veterans through the DC VA Medical Center. Their most recent gift brings the total number of donated wheelchairs to just over 500 in the last ten years. On top of personally delivering their most recent batch, the DC Knights stuck around to help unload, unbox, and set up the brand-new wheelchairs.

“We know that these providers do not always have the time or manning to come out and get the chairs ready for use,” said Hanna. “That’s why we stay to help set them up and deliver them to the appropriate service. We enjoy interacting with the staff that is on hand and getting to know the team that supports our Veterans.”

The donation was made through the Medical Center’s Center for Development & Civic Engagement (CDCE) and will be used to help Veteran’s maneuver around the facility before, during and after treatment. CDCE Chief Theo Marsh said the office maintains a “wish list” of items that frequently are needed by Veterans under care at the DC VA Medical Center.

“The Knights of Columbus recognize those needs and consistently show up to support the Veterans,” said Marsh. “We always appreciate their dedication and generosity.”

Anyone interested in donating to Veterans at the Washington DC VA Medical Center can contact the Center for Development and Civic Engagement at the DC VA Medical Center by calling 202-745-8322.

The DC Knights of Columbus would like to extend a special thank you to the American Wheelchair Mission and the New York State Council for their support through logistics and shipping to help this project become a reality.

Coming soon to D.C.: The Wharf's phase 2

The $3.6 billion Wharf development will be complete next month with the opening of phase two, which features restaurants by celebrity chefs, a luxury condo building with a $12 million penthouse, The Atlantic’s new headquarters, and 20 additional shops and restaurants.

Why it matters: The Wharf’s second phase completes the massive project that radically changed D.C’s Southwest waterfront, turning the once sleepy area mainly known for its fish market into a bustling hub.

Here’s some of what’s coming:

Some areas, including the Tides apartments, are already open.

Zoom in: This phase of The Wharf will feel a bit more buttoned up — you start with flip-flops at the fish market and work your way up to heels once you get to the new stuff toward the southern end, developer Monty Hoffman tells Axios.

Because developers enlisted interior designers for indoor and outdoor spaces, expect to see elevated touches outside too. Such as the outdoor chandeliers near the Pendry Hotel and a marble fountain near the Amaris condos.

What we're watching: Hoffman, who recently launched a $65 million development fund to finance new projects, is also working on a nearby project at Buzzard’s Point.

Dutch hotel brand Citizen M has opened an additional property in Washington DC.

The 296-room Citizen M Washington DC NoMa, located north of Massachusetts Avenue, joins the brand’s existing hotel in the city’s Capitol Hill area.

The hotel was designed by the brand’s architectural partner Concrete and features commissioned artwork by local artists, inspired by ‘The United Colors of Washington’.

Hannah Whitaker’s Circulations mural is wrapped around the facade of the hotel, while the interior features her Vibrations work, featuring dark stripes and flares of colour. Rooms, meanwhile, include contemporary works by local artists including Andy Yonder, Charles Jean Pierre, Melvin Nesbitt, Nekisha Durrett and Tim Doud.

Rooms include XL king-size wall-to-wall beds, and LED/LCD widescreen TV with streaming capabilities, free high-speed wifi and an iPad to control the lighting, blinds and TV. Bathrooms, meanwhile, include a rain shower and full-sized toiletries.

Public areas feature furnishings by the brand’s furniture partner, Vitra, and facilities include three meeting rooms, a shop and a Canteen M dining area with 24-hour grab-and-go products.

Robin Chadha, chief marketing officer, commented:

“We’re thrilled to be part of NoMa’s growth with the addition of Citizen M Washington DC NoMa. With a curated selection of artwork by local Washington-based artists and our proximity to the best the city has to offer in terms of galleries, museums, boutiques, restaurants and bars, etc., we’re excited to be able to provide guests and visitors alike with an unparalleled and culturally robust experience both in and out of the hotel.”

Close to attractions including Union Market, it is also a 25-minute drive from Reagan airport and adjacent to the NoMa-Gallaudet U New York Avenue metro station.

The brand launched in 2008, and now counts 29 hotels in its portfolio, including in US cities such as Boston, New York, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco and most recently Chicago.

The 280-room hotel is located within a 47-storey tower on North Michigan Avenue

By 2024, the brand hopes to reach 40 operational properties globally, with hotels currently under development in Miami and Austin, bringing the total to 30 locations by the end of the year.

D.C. leaders invite you to bring a friend and stay out late this weekend.

WASHINGTON — Calling all night owls! The District's annual overnight arts festival, DC Art All Night, will be held Friday, Sept. 23 and Saturday, Sept 24. The festival will include a lineup of visual and performing arts exhibits, live music and activities for children and adults. The fun kicks off at 7 p.m. and ends at 3 a.m.

With 22 activations along Main Streets corridors, within four Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) and at four DC public libraries - across all eight wards, Art All Night returns with its biggest, most collaborative program yet.

Art All Night was created in 2011 as an experimental, exploratory engagement event by the Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD). The purpose of this event is to support and elevate local artists who fuel and drive entertainment, business, and community throughout the District.

The festival will help create new revenue and economic streams for small businesses around activations sites. These partnerships will be the catalysts for corridor revitalization by highlighting music, visual, literary, and performing arts, activating public spaces, bringing new foot traffic to small and local businesses, and ultimately increasing business sales.

“We know that Washington, D.C. is the capital of creativity,” said Mayor Bowser in a press statement. “Artists and makers across D.C. help us celebrate the history and culture of our community, and this weekend, we celebrate and honor them. When we support our creatives and their businesses, we support the type of growth and innovation that help our corridors, neighborhoods, communities, and residents thrive. So, join us, bring a friend, and stay out all night!”

Art All Night went virtual for two years during the COVID-19 pandemic, but is back in person in 2022. During last in person event in 2019, DC Art All Night generated over $2 million in revenue across all participating neighborhoods.

This year, Art All Night will continue to be celebrated across all eight wards, and there will be activations located in:

(Washington, DC) – The DC Workforce Investment Council, the District’s business-led workforce board, has partnered with Indeed to host a three-day Ready to Work event for job seekers, September 22 – September 24, at Dock5 at Union Market. The event is part of a nationwide initiative led by a coalition of businesses, nonprofits, and civic partners dedicated to providing talent with the resources they need for a successful job search. Indeed, along with Glassdoor, Lyft, Goodwill, Dunkin’, the Markle Foundation’s Rework America Alliance, Care.com, and more, will provide live programming and job seeker support. In addition, Mayor Muriel Bowser has issued a proclamation marking September 2022 as “Workforce Development Professionals Month” in Washington, DC.

“We are excited to partner with Indeed, the Markle Foundation, and others to connect District residents to jobs and career resources,” said Ahnna Smith, Executive Director of the DC WIC. “We know that there is limitless potential in our community, but that it isn’t always easy to explore and connect to new career opportunities. By combining the local investments that Mayor Bowser has made in career coaching, education, and training, with the tools and scale of Indeed, we are showing our residents that we believe in their potential and are ready to support them to achieve it.”

Learn more about this event and register today: DC Ready to Work.

The event brings together national and local resources for DC job seekers, including Career Coach DC, launched this year by Mayor Bowser through a $4.6 million investment. The Career Coach DC program offers career assessment, personalized coaching, and supports that connect DC residents to education, training, and employment opportunities. Career Coach DC is free for DC residents 18 years and older who have not yet completed a 4-year college degree, or those who are low- or moderate-income. The Career Coach DC program is funded to support up to 5,000 DC residents annually over the next two years. Residents can connect with Career Coach DC and sign-up for virtual, in-person, or hybrid services by registering online at careercoach.dc.gov, by calling 202-989-1002, or by emailing [email protected]

“Economic uncertainty and inflation have many job seekers worried about their future. To help, we are proud to partner with several other organizations to bring Ready to Work to thousands of people in hopes of finding them better work faster,” said Scott Bonneau, Indeed VP of Global Talent Attraction. “In today’s U.S. labor market there is one person for every two job openings. While job seekers remain in the driver’s seat, we know the job search process can feel like a full-time job in itself. We hope to match the right job seekers with the right employers, and quickly, by providing support, resources, tools, and access to interviews with employers.”

“We’re pleased to be working with the team at the DC Workforce Investment Council to further our goal to help the millions of people in the U.S. who are struggling to move out of low-paying jobs into better roles,” said Beth Cobert, Chief Operating Officer, Markle Foundation. “Events like Indeed’s Ready-to-Work initiative and increased access to career coaching services, such as those provided by Career Coach DC, can help more people to move into the jobs they want.”

Ready to Work event attendees will also have access to other workforce development resources and services including interview and resume prep, assistance with hiring, training, and coaching to help make the job search simpler and faster. These resources, along with hundreds of thousands of job postings, and other job seeker benefits like free transportation from Lyft, live in Ready to Work’s national hub.
