I think a 'traveling market' would be readily understood. 'Itinerant' isn't a well-known word in AmE.

We see peddler shops and (market or street) traders that are only open for a short time or on certain days.

Some other possible options, depending on context, how the market actually works, and what they sell, would be:

Weekly market
Farmer's market (vendors sell food, vegetables, plants, and other misc things)
Saturday market (usually open Saturday & Sunday, vendors sell all kinds of things, with a focus on crafts, handmade things, art, food)

A note on translating things like this. If something doesn't really exist in another culture, you should probably also describe it, in addition to translating it into the other language.
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
