Kindle Fire comes only with the tiny Amazon marketplace, Installing the full android market  on the kindle fire was probably not an option for amazon as they needed the monopoly on the apps sales in order to be able to offer the Kindle Fire at the light price of 199.

Luckily, installing the Google Market place on the kindle fire is now an easy task. All you need to do is to root your kindle fire and copy the market apk to the system apps folder manually or using the kindle Fire utility.
