Rue Cler - The Most Famous Market Street in Paris!Uncover hidden gems along rue Cler, one of Paris' most beloved market streets. Brimming with cafés, boulangeries and specialty shops, this is where local Parisians go for daily shopping.
Location & Opening Hours
Location: rue Cler, 7th arrondissement
Opening Hours: Weekdays, all day Saturday and Sunday mornings. Many of the stores are closed on Mondays.
Rue Cler is especially convenient for the neighborhood because it is open on Sunday mornings, displaying the finest foods for the French families' Sunday lunch. Many families attend mass at St. Pierre du Gros Caillou on rue de Grenelle, then head to rue Cler for their baguettes, bottle of wine, cuts of meat, cheese and desserts for their traditional Sunday lunch, even selecting their Camembert and St. Felicien to the correct ripeness. You'll hear customers telling the merchants when they plan to eat the cheese, so they are carefully selected: "L'Epoisse pour demain s'il vous plait...le chevre c'est pour ce soir" ("We'll eat the Epoisse tomorrow and the goat's cheese tonight"). Get there early on Sundays to beat the crowds!
