Jerry Antush is more than a fish monger at Pike Place Market. He was born and raised in Seattle and started his Market career in the 1980s as “The Juice Man” at Scotty’s Juice Bar. It was then that he first realized it was more than a Market: “It’s always been the people – that’s what’s fun about the Market, you never quite know what to expect,” said Jerry.
More than 30 years later, Jerry has worn numerous hats in the Market from The Juice Man to fish monger and other Market jobs in between. He’s now developed a new title of himself: Marketologist and, together with his producer Bob Trombley they’re hosting the Pike Place Podcast: a weekly show to tell the stories of the icons, innovators, characters and kooks who are the Pike Place Market community – characters just like Jerry “The Juice Man” himself.
