You should find a local lumber yard that sells to hobbyists. Easiest way to find them is to ask other woodworkers in your area. Absent that, you’ll have to do some searching online and make some calls. Look for a yard that sells raw, S2S, or S4S lumber by the board. Often they’ll store lumber in a showroom where you can browse different species and their prices. And they’ll usually have a scrap bin where you can buy cutoffs and blems very cheaply.

Good luck!
