    if your looking for the market itself, there should be an icon that says "market" in your applications screen. is that what you are looking for?

    Welcome to Android Forums, Moses.

    All apps are downloadable from Market.

    :D Just kidding.

    Here's a site which has the "vending.apk" Market download (there are many ;)):

    Android.market.apk - Download

    Moses, I am staying in mid-east and experienced the same thing...
    Maybe it's not being offered in ME... :(
    Frisco, I've download android.market.apk and installed it, as suggested...
    Yup, the "Market" icon is now there. But, when i try to download any application, i got the following message:
    "Sorry! The application Market (process com.android.vending) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again"
    and button " Force Close".

    It doesn't work. Do you know why? Thanks
