The inside of the "Halle Sainte-Claire" is not easy to photograph as the booth built for the various shops have walls that forbid having a general view. You will find every fresh food shop except green grocers who are outside : fish and sea food (the photo), pork, beef, lamb, kid, poultry. There is even one of the last "tripier" (tripe shop) in France that sells, brains, kidney; liver, tripe, "rognons blancs" (white kidneys : bull and ram testicles).
The name of "Place Sainte-Claire" comes from the ancient Clarisses convent, founded in the XVth century. The superb "Halle Sainte-Claire" is a covered market built in 1874 on the place of an old chapel. It is built with an iron frame as many covered markets of that period and uses also brick and glass, which makes it more aerial.
