I don't have any first hand knowledge of that area. In Northern Virginia I found a local butcher shop that supplied my pork belly.
However, one data point that might be useful to you, is I went to the local supermarket chain (Giant here) and asked their butcher shop about Pork Belly. They told me, "We don't stock that, but we can order it for you"
So if you can't find another (better) option, you can see if your local supermarket butcher shop will order it for you.
