Your favorite place to buy seeds/heirloom seeds

hippiebiologist | Jul 17, 2012 09:02 PM

I'm a beginner (poor college student) gardener living in an apartment that finally has enough light to grow stuff (I JUST moved which is why I'm starting the gardening late). I'm interested in trying out some different varieties of veggies that I can't find at my farmers' markets around here - like rainbow carrots. I've been doing a lot of research and feel about as well-prepared for the start as I can be. So my question: where are your favorite places to buy heirloom seeds? I know of Seed Savers, and I've found some stuff on Etsy but they're so expensive by comparison to Seed Savers (again, that whole broke college student thing). I've been looking at a couple of stores around here, but they largely seem to have the standard varieties.
