Depends on where you are and whats availale.

You can get a flightless fruit fly 'culture' at petsmart. most of my bettas have loved these.
Pinhead/baby crickets are also nice if you're not opposed to your betta turning into a chomper of a shark.
A local fish and reptile store here has live blood worms aswell that all my fish adore.
Some petstores have adult brine shrimp you can buy and i've heard of people feeding them tobettas, I haven't though since we can't get them here and I have no desire to hatch and attempt to raise brine shrimp.

I have a LFS that sells live black worms that my bettas love. They told me that they will soon be selling live brine shrimp too, which would be great, because like Bambi, I have no desire to raise brine shrimp. I've done it before, but for me it's too much trouble.

In the warmer months I feed mosquito larva and anything else that I net out of my rain barrels and in the colder months I feed daphnia that grow year around in my rain barrels and when we have a few warm days in the winter/colder months I get lucky and find a few mosquito larva....I can usually have a pair ready in just a few days when I can feed lots of mosquito larva...may take a bit longer when its just daphnia....

I also feed my homemade food to keep them conditioned....
