There are seeds for sale everywhere from the local farmers market to the grocery store to the garden centre. Many gardeners try to buy the most local seeds possible because they are most closely adapted to the local growing area. Others like to search out rare seeds and new varieties each year.
The best place for finding locally-sourced seeds is your local Seedy Saturday seed swap market, held in February-March each year. Bring some of your own seeds to swap, plus a list of everything you want to grow that year (use your free garden planner!).
Where finding local seeds is impossible or impractical, I turn to the internet! These lovely companies sell GMO-free seeds online:
