Rue Cler

By Martin | January 10, 2012 | Filed under: Eiffel Tower, Streets

Paris is famous for its markets, small or big, and getting fresh produce from them is still very much part of Parisian life. In the popular and elegant 7th arrondissement, near the Champs de Mars park and the Eiffel Tower, Rue Cler is a cute little market-street. Although more and more tourists visit Rue Cler - partly due to American travel writer Rick Steve - you won’t find any souvenirs: it is still a ture Paris neighborhood market catering mostly for locals. You might not need a kilo of potatos or courgette, but there are plenty of other goodies you might want to sample: wine, cheese, sweets and chocolate. One of the best things - a very Parisian thing to do - is watching life go by from the terrace of a café: and what’s better than Café du Marché, dubbed “rue Cler’s living room,” in the middle of the action. There are also a number of excellent restaurants on rue Cler and in the area, as well as galleries, shops and boutiques.

Metro stations: École Militaire and La Tour-Maubourg.


The market is at its best:
Tue–Sat 8:30–13:00 or 15:00–19:30,
Sun 8:30–12:00,
dead on Mon.
