      CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- If the warmer temps are reminding you about your New Year's resolution to be healthier, now is the time to stock up on fresh, local veggies!

      Farmers markets all over the Lowcountry are open for business and we've compiled a list of remaining opening dates for the market near you.

      North Charleston will be starting their market on April 18. Located at the Felix C Davis Community Center at 4800 Park Circle, they run from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. every Thursday.

      According to Peggy Withrow, the Coosaw Creek farmers market, also in North Charleston, will not be held this year due to budgeting issues.

      The Sunday Brunch Farmers Market on James Island kicks off their new season at Medway Park in Riverland Terrace on Sunday, April 28.
