Cool list! I think there's one in Santa Fe that Peggy shops at. I'll ask her to check and include it here.
Additionally, Tom Johns also said they would provide a list upon request for which seeds Territorial was getting from Seminis. So, if you want to use them, you might also contact them and ask for a list.
There are a few favorite missing from this list, and as far as I can find through my research they are all or mostly Monsanto-free. I love Restoration Seeds, they have the best selection of perennial vegetables that I've been able to find (great if you're getting into permaculture). And Johnny's Select Seeds is a company owned seed company with a HUGE variety of seeds. They do sell a small selection of seeds from Semenis, but they are very upfront about it (I easily found a company issued list of the Semenis varieties they sell, and it's a super short list- if you're interested email them and they will let you know). But they are 100% GMO seed free and have a huge selection of organic seeds.
