We couldn't find the market, although we were definitely on rue cler. Think we were seeking an open market and we should have been looking for just shops. In any case, I think we should have been looking for just a small row of shops, but it all appeared very unremarkable and same as everywhere else. We probably missed something?

Having heard how charming Rue Cler is, with its proximity to the Eiffel Tower, we decided to go for lunch. Here are two places NOT to go to: Artisan Boulanger Patissier, 45 Rue Cler, and Ulysse, a crepe restaurant. The woman at the first place couldn't be bothered to help us, and walked away. At Ulysse, the woman making crepes... More

Coming out of the Metro station you will see lots of prostitues. The market is over by 2pm. The street that the market was in (we got there too late) is kind of similar to Petticoat Lane. Walk a little further and you will see the Paris equivalent of Soho but nowhere near as good. Almost 10 euros for 2... More

Entering on the Ecole Militare side, we enjoyed the butcher on the left for roasted chicken and potatoes, Amarino for gelato, fabulous fruit on the left, ate at Tribeca, shopped in the grocery store on the right, enjoyed many cheeses and butter from the cheese shop on the right. There is a bakery/pastry shop on rue cler--we prefer the one... More

We stayed here and enjoyed it a lot. Lovely little streets to stroll on at night after seeing the big sights. Felt very safe. Lively, little quaint area that you feel is the true Paris. Lots of restaurants, small markets and bakeries. Really great within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower.

This is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Paris. It is a lovely, upscale Parisian neighborhood that is peaceful, quiet, and elegant. It is easy to walk along, shopping as you go in charming bakeries, cheese shops, chocolate shops, candy stores, wine shops, bookstores, fruit shops, veggie shops, and flower shops. Each store specializes and has the freshest of the... More

This is one of our favorite places in Paris. We stayed her last March and fell in love. We are heading back in July and had to make sure we had a place near or on Rue Cler. Cute shops and great restaurants with lots of people watching. Definitely worth a trip.

We stayed just off Rue Cler and were so pleased with our neighborhood choice. It was great to be within walking distance of so many charming restaurants, fresh produce, wine stores, crepes, bakeries and more.

After visiting the Eiffel Tower our tour guide recommended we try Rue Cler for the markets for our picnic on the grass under the Tower. We were not disappointed as this was the most beautiful of streets. The food options were amazing from fresh fruit, deli's and wine shops. The piano according playing gentleman added to the atmosphere. Will definitely... More

You will find this only 1 minute from the Ecole Militarie metro exit. There are cafes, a fruit market, one souvenir shop, Monop' (groceries), another grocery store, cookie store, chocolate store, you will find something to enjoy. Also, 2 or 3 ATMS/banks. Not a farmers market though.
