Most repair places and small accessory shops carry batteries.
Alternatively the internet has everything!
amazon, ebay etc.

Check out eBay, just try to get a reputable brand or better yet an official replacement battery because some 3rd party batteries are known to catch on fire and if you use a 3rd party one it's not covered under Warranty if something happens such as the battery exploding. It's not a big deal probably because it is a cheaper phone though but more for safety reasons go with an official if possible.

Any phony clone is going to be advertised as Samsung OEM.

Anker is a good reliable brand if you have no assurance of the "Samsung" provenance. Canadian Amazon site has nothing with customer ratings. If you have access to US delivery, check the Amazon.com listings and the customer ratings.

Consider the current retail value of the Core and the battery... you may find it's time to upgrade the phone for a few dollars more and have an included 12-month warranty on the whole shebang.
