Where can I buy large quantities (an amount resulting in 8 cups of leaves or more) of basil anywhere in an arc from Ft. Myers to Plant City to Tarpon Springs?

Growing a large quantity of fresh basil outside is not possible for me. (I can grow some on a pool patio but not in the quantities I want.) I rarely make pestos using fresh basil because buying the small quantities available to me from Publix or other grocery stores is prohibitively expensive. I also like using fresh basil in a lot of other dishes. Where can I buy big bunches of basil (or basil plants) for a low price in an area of Ft. Myers in the south, Plant City in the east, and Tarpon Springs in the north? I live in Tampa. Thanks!
