Yankee Peddler Bookshop is a used bookstore that specialize in rare and antiquarian books as well as some autographs, photos, and maps. It also has a great selection of Rochester; namely specific books, history, and postcards. They also carry a cheap paperbacks and old magazines, including the occasional Analog and Asimov's. They don't buy many titles published after about 1980, unless it's a very significant book, and they do appraisals and book restoration.

The store is owned by John Westerberg, who has been in business for over 35 years. They are a member of the Rochester Area Booksellers Association.

Yankee Peddler was previously located in the Village Gate. As of June 2012, they are online only.
