Central Market Ration Card

Today is Grandparents Day and we have a fan photo that hearkens back to an era of our grandparents and great-grandparents. It’s a ration card for Central Market dating back to World War II. Ration cards were issued to civilians living in the United States and limited the amount and types of groceries they could purchase. Because things like meat and vegetables were in short supply at times, many homemakers turned to creative meal planning with the limited supplies on hand. It also spurred an interest in growing their own food. These were called Victory Gardens and were quite popular.

We want to thank our friend Ronald Martin for sending this photo to us! It’s fun to be able to look back at history and realize the bounty we have now. We are always interested in cool photos like this so if you have a “blast from the past”, share it with us HERE.
