Pulpo Octopus in Galicia Spain

Pulpeiro is a person who sells pulpo (octopus).  Every week, in the small towns surrounding Ourense, Galicia, there are markets where locals can buy a ration of pulpo to take home to their family.  This market is in the town of Cartelle.  People here buy the pulpo and eat it at the local bar.  The man above has been a pulpeiro for a very long time, quite the expert on these little critters.  My great-grandfather used to order octopus from him when my grandmother was a child.  He was very willing to show us his merchandise and let us taste before we made our purchase.
