My understanding is the market downtown is more goods rather than produce (please correct me if I'm off base). Is there a public market for fresh fruits and veggies on a daily/weekly basis?

Not this time of year. In the summer, there are a few around the area.

There is a fresh market in Summerville on Cedar St and 6th...

It is open every day, not everything is local but it is still fresh....

Marion Square farmers market and there are a couple in Mount Pleasant. One is at Town Centre and the other is somewhere around Coleman. Boone Hall also has fresh produce.

I would say it is maybe 60/40 goods to produce. Either way you need to check it out. I have not been to the one in old Mt Pleasant but I hear it is good. I think they start back up in April or May.

The Vegetable Bin, off East Bay downtown, is not an open-air mkt but they do sell quality f & v and offer local produce when they can obtain it.

I go to both the downtown farmers' market and the Mt. Pleasant market at Moultrie (Tuesday afternoon. The Marion Square market has a mix of produce/crafts. Moultrie/Mt. Pleasant has a very good farmers market -- fresh produce, fresh baked goods....it's a great market.

The Summerville Farmer's Market opens in April and is held every Saturday morning right up until the fall. This is from the Summerville website:

The 2013 Summerville Farmers' Market

Shop for fresh local produce, meats, seafood, baked goods and more every Saturday morning 8am-1pm from April 13th through November 23rd.

The market is located in the 1st Citizens bank parking lot adjacent to Summerville Town Hall at 200 S. Main Street.

Thanks for all of the recommendations!

I'm surprised downtown doesn't have it's gem of a spot for fresh produce. Anyone want to go into business together? ;-)
