Helen Smith Price could not have been more prepared when she was tapped in April to become the new president of The Coca-Cola Foundation.

Price has served as executive director of the foundation since 2001, joining the company in 1993. As the protégé of her predecessor, Ingrid Saunders Jones, she also has seen how the Foundation has evolved over the years.

KSU farmers market latest addition to growing ranks for locally grown foods

The student-run summer farmers market has reopened at Kennesaw State University, marking another milestone in the expansion of shops for locally grown food.

The KSU market is open Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., placing it among the markets that aren’t competing in saturated Saturday morning time slot. For example, the ELF Market, East Lake Farmers Market, is open Tuesday evenings.

The size of these local markets is in stark contrast to Your DeKalb Farmers Market, generally viewed as the granddaddy of them all and preparing for a massive expansion. And the little farmers markets represent the growing appetite for locally grown food products sold in a neighborhood setting.
