Whats the best market/farmers market for fruit and veg etc in SE1 - preferably close to Borough. (assuming borough market not really for this sort of thing) Need something open on weekends or very early mornings due to work.

Why not BM? There are 3 fruit 'n veg sellers there open throughout the week (setting up early in the morning), increasing to 6 or 7 between Stoney Street and the Green Market by Friday / Saturday. Despite some people's assumptions about everything in BM, they are not all eye-wateringly expensive (though probably avoid Turnips if you'd rather not have that heart stopping moment at the till).
