Black eyed pea day at Farmer's Market

WICHITA FALLS, TX -

It was a day for black eyed peas at the Wichita Falls Farmers Market.

The vegetable, most commonly eaten on New Year's Day in hopes to bring good luck, was served up in more ways than just one.

Passerby could try the traditional black eyed peas and corn bread, but also some recipes with a unique twist, like black eyed pea dip, hummus, and even Texas Caviar. 

Organizers for the Farmer's Market said this is just one of the many themed days they plan to do this summer.

"Typically this time of year, black eyed peas are in abundance," said Sherin Clark, manager of the Wichita Falls Farmer's Market.  "This time of the year we typically have a ton of them and we want to share with people how to use them, how to enjoy them."

Clark said black eyed peas will be in season until about mid September.
