Is there a difference between the "Really Raw" honey i find at Whole foods, and locally made honey that I can get from a farmers market? Which one would be better?

The ONLY way to know for sure is to talk to the people that bottle it, or jar it, whatever the terminology is.
Raw honey, simply means that it is NOT cooked.
But it doesn't mean it isn't heated.
Honey is normally heated to 160 degrees or more to allow it to flow easily out of the comb, and into the jar.
So, what you want is "un-heated" raw honey.

What Raw Preistess said is good.
I would like to add. This is how to tell if the honey in question is truly raw or not. If the honey is opaque and thick and gloopy, it's truly raw most likley. If it's clear and sorta runny, not almost whitish in color, it's been through the heating mill and is not tryly raw.
A close aquaintance ran a honey farm. So I know from firsthand experiance.

The cool thing about buying local is that you can actually talk to them in person and get your questions asked directly.
The other cool thing is that eating locally grown anything is best (well, not locally grown animals!).
