Seems like FALCON LEAP and the Market Garden memorial are not integrated this year. There is no mentioning in the list of any jumps on the 18th when the memorial is being held.
That's because market garden is not part of exercise falcon leap, they are two sepperate events. It's highly likely the falcon leap participants also participate the market garden commemorations as they do every year, but there's simply no guarantee. Just wait and see

I know but usually it was a 1 to 1 connection. All (or most) FL participants would also participate in the Market Garden drops. But this year that does not seem to be the case looking at the current schedule.

Outside of the 2 drops from parachute group Holland (who will most likely jump from a C-47 as most years) there is only 1 short dropped planned by the 11 luchtmobiele brigade.

Correct, On saturday there is only 1 drop from 7 a/c taking off from EHEH (a third US herc from RS is planned to join).

Remember that if you wanna go to Ginkel on saturday, you need to register for free tickets (max 12.000 people are allowed).

Most probably cancelled as LTG63 trained their „Trall-Ballet“ on 14 September and they definitely need all their aircraft active for the fly-out on 23 September.

A source working for the town of Ede and who is part of the preparations for Saturday confirmed that all Falcon Leap aircraft will also participate in the Market Garden jumps on Saturday.

Omroep GLD says the following:
Om 09.30 uur stappen de parachutisten in de toestellen en omstreeks 12.00 uur landt het laatste vliegtuig weer op vliegbasis in Eindhoven
/
At 09.30am the paratroopers board the aircrafts, and around 12.00pm the last plane lands again at Eindhoven Airbase.
I guess take-off at 09:45 or so...
