There is a library copy, entry forms to take, and reference books on the fair standards for vegetables, fruit, etc. at the Library.  They are in a box with a colourful fair poster taped around it on a top book shelf in the non-fiction section, against the wall.  You might be able to get copies if you need the library to make copies for you.
