    You can purchase it from Fungi Perfecti. They have a very good website if you like growing mushrooms.

    Many Hydroponic supply stores carry it as well.

    I just want to throw out a word of caution here. One of the main benificial fungi sold these days is Trichoderma, there was a big hullabaloo a while back on the listserv about it. One thing that seems to get looked over a lot is that Trichoderma is a potential human pathogen and makes a really nasty toxin. If you are using/working with it USE GLOVES AND A RESPIRATOR!!! This stuff isn't like peat or sphag where the odds of getting something are 1000000:1

    As far as I know RootSheild and FloraSheild are the two most popular commercial sources of trichoderma. It is not a typical mycorrhizae. Its is a Mycoparasite. Heres a link to the stuff I use it does not contain trichoderma.
    Its constituents are,
    Pisolithus tinctorious, Rhizopogon luteolus, Rhizopogon fulvigleba, Rhizopogon villosuli, Rhizopogon amylopogon, Glomus intraradices,Glomus clarum, Glomus mosseae, Glomus monosporus, Glomus deserticola, Glomus brasilianum, Gigaspora margarita.

    Heres a nice overview of mycorrhizae.
