Now on Saturdays you can go to the Troy Farmers Market at it’s new location in Lansingburgh at the old Price Chopper site and then come to the Book Seller . We offer gently used books of all types, plus CDs. The store has new selections each week. These have been safely quarantined before being put on the shelves.
