Corned beef: where to find saltpeter?

Has anyone ever purchased saltpeter in the Boston/Camberville area? (For making corned beef, of course, not smoke bombs -- though apparently it's good for that, too.) All this St. Paddy's corned beef talk has inspired me to make my own, and Alton Brown swears by saltpeter for that pretty pink color.
