Sources of vermiculite in northern Virginia

I live in Woodbridge, VA [washington DC suburbs]
I am trying to setup a Square foot garden.

At first I found out that vermiculite is almost impossible to find here in northern Virginia. After searching for a day or so I eventually found a few suppliers of it:

* Meadow view farms in Woodbridge has the fine variety the kind they tell us to stay away from] 4 cu ft bag for $25

* Home Depot has 2 cu ft bags of the medium variety for $21

* Merrifield Gardens in Fair Oaks has the 4 cu ft bags of coarse vermiculite for $40

* Roxbury Farms in Fredericksburg has 4 cu ft bags of coarse vermiculite for $27

* Southern States in Manassas has 4 cu ft bags of coarse vermiculite for $18

I hope this saves someone time in the future

RE: Sources of vermiculite in northern Virginia

Just wanted to say thanks for this. Looking to setup my first SF garden here in the next month. I live in Fredericksburg so now I know where to find vermiculite. Thanks again.
