This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Which device is this for? – David Caunt Apr 6 '11 at 11:39
is market app is device specific or android version specific or both? – HellBoy Apr 6 '11 at 15:01

If you have wi-fi or 3G you can install it through AppBrain Andoid market App

In case if you dont have any network connection you have to find the .pkg (compiled android package) for Android market application, then you need to install it via ADB
