You can buy it online.  In the USA, Lowe's Home Improvement Center carries
it under the Green Light label and under the name Vegetable, Fruit & Nut
Spray.  Gardens Alive and Gardener's Supply catalogs carry it, too, but the
stuff they package is very watered down and not as effective.  A bottle of
neem oil will run about $15 US, plus shipping, but it's a huge amount.  I
think the bottle is 32 oz., but you only use a tablespoon to make gallons of
spray.
