The Rue Mouffetard (called "la Mouff" to the locals) is one of Paris's great market streets. We found this while following the directions of a walking tour book.
This is a pedestrian street with one great little store/food stall after another: produce, meat, cheese (ooh, those fantastic cheeses!), seafood, and desserts. The food and delicacies are so beautifully arranged against a narrow cobblestone street backdrop winding through the Latin Quarter towards the Seine.
You'll also find some interesting little bohemian shops (we found a tiny music store where, with the help of the artsy staff, we found some great French chanson music), as well as a lot of little cafes and ethnic restaurants.
