Usually the one in Helvetiaplatz is on Saturdays in the warmer months. It's usually packed, and chaotic but fun - just watch out for pickpockets...

Yes; every Saturday from 8 to 4-ish. (8-4 officially, but people tend to start packing things up a bit earlier, especially if the weather's bad.)

I always have the feeling these markets are populated with trades people that buy up the house content of recently deceased people

Hi, this page gives an brief overview of the Helvetiaplatz market:

It also contains a link to another page that tells you the times of various food markets in and around Zurich.
Have fun!
