on osm we tend to focus on geographic features, so
amenity=market;marketplace wouldn't be in this spirit because either
market is the same as marketplace or it is nothing physical that you can
see there all the time, but it's more like an event that takes place
every now and then. So I would say the fact that they have a market each
week is a feature of the marketplace.
You could write
if you like to make extra sure that these are the market times and not
the times the place is accessible. (However I would prefer a simple
opening_hours=* as it is quite obvious what is meant here.)
On your wiki changes: If you edit an approved feature, make sure most
people agree with you and you don't add even more confusion for newbies.
Maybe start on the discussion page and then move it over to the main
page if there are no objections.
