Best Sources for Locally Grown Groceries?

I've seen a lot of similar posts on this board for specific foods, but what are your best tips for finding a wide variety of locally grown foods? I know that the farmers markets are at the top of the list. But during the off season, or when your shopping schedule is out of sync with the market schedules, where do you go?

I buy the majority of my groceries from Wilson Farms, but I was frustrated to learn that their beef comes from Utah and other meats come from Pennsylvania, New York, etc. Since it's early in the season, most of their produce is coming from California and Mexico. Boston Organics gets a good portion of their produce from the west coast and South America too. Does Russo's carry local foods? How about New Deal? Is their fish mostly local? Are there other meat / seafood stores where I can count on finding some local options year round?
