Looking for Compost

I’m digging up my backyard this weekend for a tomato/eggplant/pepper plot and looking for cheap compost (going all organic this year). I hate to pay for it, but I definitely don’t have enough in my bin for these purposes.
Any suggestions of where to get it for cheap, in or near DC? I would definitely prefer to buy it bagged as I don’t need a whole truckload, nor do I have a truck… or a place for a load to be dumped (har har).
I also hope this is helpful to the other gardeners out there looking to get things in shape before our last frost date! Thanks, popville–you’re the best.  -b

The garbage dump in Charles County, MD, just south of Waldorf has HUGE piles of free compost for the taking. You can take it by the truckful
