“Lovely place to buy food to cook your own dinner in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Although our guidebook listed this as a "market", it's really more a street with food/wine/cheese/bread shops. Everything sold is of very high quality, with prices to match, but everything we got was delicious! We purchased honey from the honey shop, a variety of cheeses and local butter from the cheese shop, veggies and fruits from multiple stores, and an amazing brioche and macarons from a patisserie. If you don't rush, stay out of people's way, and attempt to speak French, the shopkeepers are quite pleasant. It's a great place to see how a section of Parisian society lives and shops.

“nothing really”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

just a small street with some rather expensive shops ..it's called in french "commercial street" as you can buy food drinks and all you need for your house....the only interest is that it's situated just between the eiffel tower and the invalides and is very close to both

“Rue Cler market in the winter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Being in Paris in winter time has its plus side but not for the open markets. I am sure this street market is great during springtime and summer but during winter it can get really chilly. The crowds were there my fiance said when he went there one morning but the two times I went there during noontime, it was nothing. The regular stalls were open but not much hustling and bustling..I loved it don't get me wrong...I had the whole block to myself.
Just plan head if you want the market experience coz there is nothing happening on rue Clear in the freezing winter. The cafe looked nice and toasty warm inside though.
