Where can I buy octopus in Vancouver?

Having lived in Japan and gotten used to the relatively cheap availability of octopus, I wonder where I can find it here.

H Mart had a cooked leg for $7.00.

Is there anyplace else interesting?

  1. Angel Seafoods and Fujiya come to mind.

    1. Not knowing the weight of that cooked leg you mentioned, but for reference, today at Fujiya I saw they had it on sale, uncut, for $5.75 per 100g. A bit more if you want it sliced, but why would you bother to pay for that when you can do it yourself. :)

      I know they sell it at Kim's Mart as well.

        I have seen it at T&T in the freezers as well.

      2. the salmon shop at granville island almost always has fresh b.c. octopus.
