Some people call it the “flea market” section of the Kentucky State Fair.

The official name is South Wing C, a massive exhibition hall with almost five hundred booths full of just about anything you can imagine. And this year, for the first time, there’s a booth where Muslim volunteers are giving away free copies of the Quran.

I spent some time there this week as part of our series, “Fair Enough.”
