Octopus Balled Up
This is going to become sushi in some restaurant. Perhaps a little Takoyaki? See an example in a Kyoto Market

(Thanks goes to Karen Sanamyan at ascidiacea.com/
Species: Halocynthia roretzi (Maboya in Japanese)

Snails
I'm not sure why the shells on these snails are so broken. I'm not sure if these are salt water or fresh or how it's eaten.

Processing Area
The hanger doesn't have central lighting (that I saw), but there are large sky lights. Most of the vendors had lighting over their sales area, but some parts of the building were quite dark.
