...according to this week's Time Out, and their new website confirms:

Is this to be ongoing?

I'm not sure how it differs from what has been happening on Thursdays for ages. A small but significant number of stalls have been operating on Thursdays for months/years.

Understandably the trustees want to raise awareness of Thursday trading, but their press release earlier this month presented it as a new thing, which I thought was slightly misleading (though obvious makes a better story for the likes of Time Out).

Quite, and not the first example of the Trustees being a bit slow on the uptake.....

I've been shopping there in Thursdays for ages.

Thursdays used to be the only day to do proper shopping there, since the market became a tourist destination on Fridays and Saturdays. It is rather a pity that this press release will probably turn Thursday into the same hectic event. But, many useful stalls are open all week, which is great.

I know some of the shops around the edges are open every day, but I assumed the recent Thursday announcement was something more significant. Ah well. Looking forward to Wednesday next.

Great! Another day when the area is mobbed by tourists. Recently, it's been as bad, if not worse at times than Piccadilly Circus. Food, food everywhere, but not a crumb I can afford. More M&S Food stores than probably any square mile outside the square mile, more organic food, lakes of asses milk to bathe in, an entire feast of epicurean delights, but at the same time you can't find a single potato, onion or carrot at Tesco at the Elephant at times and the only thing Sainsbury's has is an overpriced bag of Charlottes. They're great for salads the bag says.... Unfortunately I wanted mash.

I noticed some of the stalls chees ect selling on Thursday about a year and a half ago.
