Bicycle Outside Flower Stall
Whether one is seeking the perfect bunch of asparagus or fresh-cut flowers, rue Cler is a favorite haunt for Parisians in search of dinner -- or the good life in general.
Rue Cler, Seventh Arrondissement of Paris
Traffic-free since 1984, rue Cler is lined with all the essential shops -- wine, cheese, chocolate, bread -- as well as a bank and a post office. The shops are run by men and women who grew up on quiche and knew a good wine at an early age.
Parisian Cheese Shop
The cheese shop contains a dazzling selection in every shape and size: wedges and cylinders, balls and mini hockey pucks, all powdered white, gray and burnt marshmallow -- it's a veritable festival of mold.
