Heju market update

Google Earth has recently updated the imagery of the DPRK’s southern city of Haeju.  Here are some of the new attractions (click images for larger version):

However, a new market opened up in the south of the city:

In fact, they seem to have constructed a new market district in the city:

Located in the Haeju’s north west. I am unsure what they manufacture:
