Great question. I tried to find out how to also, and from what I can see, you can't. I tried what you mention here, and it has no effect. After doing so, all previous searches are still there.

Market is not listed. I wanted to do the same in google maps, but the clear cache option is greyed out. :(

Market is indeed listed. go to settings -> apps -> manage apps. From there, click the menu icon again, click Filter. Then click All - You will then find Market. Click into it and u can clear cache. Whether or not the market saved searches are driven by that cache is another story, but try it out.

also - google maps does allow clearing cache. If it's grayed out that means there is no cache data. I just checked and I can indeed clear cache.

and one more :) clearning market cache, dont do it, has no effect on the search results. I then tried the default search setting, and cleared that history too but only effects the global search. There must be a way, i'll let u know if i find it

unfortunately, from all i've researched, its just not supported right now i believe. seems like something they should add as that list can grow out of control. Or at the very least is should cap out at a certain number and delete older ones. I can still see my very first market search.

yes this clears the google search but this does not affect the search history in the market application. I tried that already thinking they shared a cache, but they do not.

Yeah, every search ever made in the Market is still showing up. Clearing the cache is like Rainier Wolfcastle wearing the goggles... they do nothing. :D
