NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- With all of the news regarding Syria, TheStreet's Jim Cramer tells Brittany Umar a couple of his favorite domestic plays.

Kroger ( KR) reports earnings on Sept. 12 and Cramer will certainly be watching, but perhaps for difference reasons than you may think.

He wants to get a tell of how things might be going for Whole Foods Market ( WFM).

Because of the oversea problems, particularly with Syria, Cramer added that he wants a domestic play with high growth, and nothing fits the description better than Whole Foods.

He went on to say that he does indeed like Kroger as well, especially with its focus on private label items.

With the recently weak nonfarm payrolls report released last week, investors have started to shift back into pharmaceuticals and supermarkets, he said.

Cramer concluded that he likes Whole Foods at its current level and Kroger at levels approximately $1 per share lower.
