Feel all around the sink, disposal, drains, pipes, valves, etc. (don't forget the sprayer and the diverter valve on the faucet) underneath with dry fingers. Try it with the water and disposal on and off.
It could be water from anywhere around the sink, disposal or faucet above, the drain, or a supply pipe or valve. I doubt that it's condensation like on a toilet tank.
Good luck,
