Where can I buy fresh, normal peas? The only kinds I can find are sugar snap or snow peas. I want a heartier pea that I can cook with. I do not want to eat the pod.

I live near South Street and have checked the Italian Market. I'm hoping some of the farmers' markets have them. They should be in season. But I am doubtful. Is there a name that I should be calling the peas I am looking for?

Any help is appreciated!

    You can buy fresh shelled peas at Sue's Produce on 18th Street between Samson and Chestnut.
    They were delicious last week...never made it home with them.

      I have yet to see any at the local farmer's markets so give it a week or so. Peas are peas : )
