sagu food market

I see this little hut everyday on my way to work behind the "Star" gas station on Broadway. What was it? How did it even get a permit to sell food? What kind of food did it sell? It seems to be out of business now, but I always imagined a dim little shop with dried octopus tentacles and old bones hanging from the rafters, with a little old man smoking opium in the back. And, apparently, two liters of Coca-Cola.
Pretty soon the kudzu will take it over and demolish the hut, but right now it's just another enigma in North Knoxville.

I'm not sure that even Kudzu can take over that little shop of horrors...
