Today is Saturday. Every week on this day an outdoor market take place in the street in front of my house. When I look out of the window I can see it.
They sell many types of products like clothing, flowers and plants, fruit, food etc..
Alongside the stalls there is a little space to park and some people put their cars in a double row. The consequence is that every week many people argue and yell because they remain blocked for some time.
Is all that their fault?

Your grammar, spelling, word order and expressions are genuinely excellent.  I've only made a few minor changes, and I've explained them below :)

Today is Saturday. *Every week on this day an outdoor market *takes place in the street in front of my house. When I look out of the window, I can see it. They sell many types of products like clothing, flowers *and plants, fruit, food etc. Alongside the stalls there is a little space to park, and some people *double park. The consequence is that every week many people argue and yell because they remain *blocked in for some time. Is all that their fault?  

Notes:

* Alternatively: Every Saturday of the month or every Saturday.  Your sentence is not incorrect at all.  These alternatives are just quicker to say :)

* Verbs in the 3rd person singular usually, but not always, end in 's'.  Some modal verbs don't end in 's'.  Example: He sleeps.  She walks.  It barks.  He will.  She must.  He may.

* There is always a comma before these words when they link two sentences: and, but, for, or, so, yet

* As 'flowers and plants' are sold on the same stall, it makes sense that they are linked by an 'and' in the list.  However, as 'and' should only appear before the last item in a list, 'and' shouldn't really appear between 'flowers and plants'.  I've not corrected it, as it makes sense to link them for the above reason :)

* 'Put their cars...' they pick them up, and place them somewhere.  'Park their cars..' they drive them.  'Double park' means one car is parked behind the other, so the car in front can't move.  http://controweb.it/desc_articolo.php?id=908&toptit=CRONACA:%20PARCHEGGIO%20IN%20DOPPIA%20FILA,%20PER%20LA%20CASSAZIONE%20%E8%20REATO

* To be blocked in: Anna was blocked in for two hours as Mark had double parked.

You're welcome :):)

* Based on Don172's review, I thought I'd mention the two different meanings in the sentence 'there is (a) little space to park'.

- There is a little space to park = There is a small space where people can park.  [The space is small, but not too small] 

-There is little space to park = The parking space is too small.

 

*I hope that's not confusing :)

What I wanted to say is that near the market there isn't any parking lot. People can leave their cars in the streets around. So, it is very difficult to find a free space. This is also Italy.  :-)

Sarah gave you very good feed-back. I add a few small points.

Sara vi ha dato le risposte eccellenti. Aggiungo alcune cose piccole.

1. "there is a little space to park" = "there are few parking spaces" = "parking is a problem"

2. "Double park" means to park along side of a parked car, so that it cannot drive away. It is "boxed in."

3. "the consequence is that" = "As a consequence," or more commonly, "As a result,"

Lei Capisce il mio l'inglese? Ciao, Don
