You might want to contact Flower Garden Farm in Falmouth; they have a "plug party" once or twice a year where they sell plugs that they'd otherwise pot up and grow on. They stock a lot of unusual plants, so they might be interested in splitting some trays of oddities with you.

This is not in the area that you defined, but I thought I would posted it for others that may be interested. I just heard of a place in Torrington, CT called Mack and Twine that sells plugs. I don't know if they have a website, but I found their Facebook page.

Ontheteam, yes Reggie Soares and his wife are the owners.
They advertise the plug sales in the local paper, maybe on their web site too. If I see the ad, I'll post it here.
