Burnaby residents are invited to take care of their health in more ways than one at this weekend's farmers' market at the Burnaby Village Museum.
Not only will there be healthy food on hand, but the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, B.C. and Yukon region's Pink Tour will be making a stop there, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The tour's pink bus will be at Saturday's market, providing information on early breast cancer detection, according to Lyn Hainstock, manager of the market.
The bus is traveling throughout the province this summer, offering displays and encouraging women between the ages of 40 and 79 to book a free mammogram, according to a press release from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Women who register on the bus will be signed up to get calls from the Screening Mammography Program of B.C., to book an appointment.
The tour began in Vancouver in May, and is scheduled to travel throughout the province until September.
The farmers' market takes place on Saturdays until Oct. 29.
The market is comprised of tables for farmers, prepared food vendors and crafters. There is also a kids' play area and a community area for non-profit groups, as well as weekly entertainment.
A cooking competition is scheduled for the first Saturday of the month at noon.
Family days will also be held for B.C. Day, on July 30; Labour Day, on Sept. 10; and Thanksgiving, on Oct. 8.
