Paris' Rue Cler Street Market

Paris is peppered with pockets of what you could call "village Paris": neighborhoods that retain a small-town charm, where you can sample the Parisian love and appreciation for community. That's especially true in the fresh-food purveyors that line Rue Cler, as shopping for groceries is the backbone of daily life in Paris. Rue Cler's small specialty stores are brimming with fresh produce, meat, bread, seafood, and smelly cheese, providing a feast for the eyes and nose as well as the stomach. And don't forget the wine — an essential part of any French meal. Bon appetit!
