As I read `Exporting' [1], the instruction is to load ox-md or customize 
`org-export-backends'. When I type

M-x customize-variable org-export-backends RET

a buffer pops up with boxes to check including one for 

;   md          Export buffer to Markdown format

checking this box and clicking on `Apply' turns on Markdown export. Clicking 
`Apply and Save' will also result in Markdown being enabled in future sessions.
