Farmers markets aren't the only places to get locally grown produce in the summer. Some Lowcountry farms offer "u-pick" vegetables and fruits, which are great for those who want to can or freeze quantities. A number of these farms also sell a variety of already-picked produce from their fields; call ahead to find out what's available.
