Pentaho Marketplace allows users to explore and test the plugins that are most relevant for them. It means high quality and useful plugins that users can use to get the most out of their business.
You can contribute with your own plugins and let everyone take advantage of your work, which represents a great path to get other people's feedback and involvement in your work.

If you're using the Community Edition of Pentaho 6.0+ you don't have to worry about this - Marketplace comes with it and it's ready to be used.
If you have Pentaho 6.0+ Enterprise Edition and go to Marketplace Public Site to try to download the Marketplace plugin, you'll see it's not there.
The reason for that? It's an OSGi plugin and you already have it, but it comes disabled by default. Here are the instructions on how to enable it:
Restart your server, and you're done!
Just unzip the marketplace folder in your
/system/ folder, restart your server and you're done.
