- Contain high amounts of fiber
- High in lutein, which is a nonprovitamin A carotenoid and acts as an antioxidant, protecting your cells from oxidation

When to Look for Peas: Peas usually appear at markets the second week of June and continue on through the summer. We carry both snap peas and shelling peas.
Best Uses for Peas: Peas make a great on-the-go snack that's nutritious and tasty. Peas are also great for stir frys, salads, and soups!
How to Store Peas: Don't shell your peas until they're ready to use! Store peas in the fridge in a plastic bag. If you want to freeze them, shell them, blanch them, and chill quickly in ice water. Then pour them into a bag and freeze for the winter!
