Fresh octopus for sale in SEA?

Hey there---
Can anyone recommend a good place to buy fresh octopus right now in Seattle? My 6-year-old daughter loves the grilled octopus at Zoe and wants me to try recreating it at home, so what can I do but try to oblige her? In the past I've seen fresh octopus at Central Market and also Uwajimaya, but I'm not sure it was at CM last time I looked (is it seasonal?), and I find the whole ID traffic scene too difficult to deal with on most weekends (but I'm willing if that's the only alternative). Since I'm not going to eat it raw (though she does like it that way too) I'd rather not pay the sashimi-grade price if I don't have to, though of course it would need to be very fresh.
