Paintsville flocks to Market 606

Shoppers at the firs-ever Market 606 in Paintsville browsed the wares of dozens of vendors and Main Street shops while taking in live music and a movie downtown.

Paintsville welcomed September with the first-ever Market 606 Saturday evening, with downtown stores open late and vendors lining the sides of Main Street.

Paintsville Tourism Executive Director Josh Johnson said the Market 606 enterprise is a collaboration between the downtown businesses, tourism and other agencies that partnered together to make this night market happen. 

“We had 300 to 400 people come out,” Johnson said. “Sort of like a mini-Apple Day. Everybody really enjoyed it.” 

The event also featured food, live music, an outdoor movie screening and rides for kids on the tourism commission’s train. 

Johnson said that plans are tentatively in the works to host another such market closer to Christmas.
