Boyfriend and I went to the Eugene farmers market and Saturday market last weekend.

For the first time. And we’ve been in Eugene for four years. I know, I know. I’m mad at us for you.

It was beautiful and certainly lived up to my expectations for a Eugene gathering. There were tons of people and things to do, including live music, great food, and talented vendors. I bought a few things from the farmers market: two pints of strawberries, a bag of fingerling potatoes, and a beautiful bunch of basil.

I was craving a fresh, lemony dessert and still had a frozen pie crust from the pack I’d bought for strawberry pie. So, I changed up my lemon bar recipe by adding strawberry syrup and fresh strawberries.

It was almost custard-like in texture, but delightfully light, tart, and sweet. Really, truly, this is strawberry lemonade in pie form. I can’t wait to make this for a barbecue this summer!
