Most farmstands/markets usually carry the standard apple varieties and very
rarely do you find one carrying an old or very old variety of apples.

A small note, apples grown in one area will not taste the same as those
grown in another area, even if they are the same kind.

I've been casually following this thread.  I'm surprised I haven't
seen a suggestion to try farmstands or farmers markets (if this
suggestion was made, then I'm too casual).  A farmstand nearby
(Southern Oregon) sometimes has 12-15 bins of different apples.  No
really ancient varieties but lots of different kinds.  They had
Gravensteins earlier in the fall but they are over with now.
