Have you created a Markdown file format in LyX,

Tools > Preferences > File Handling > File Formats

ensuring the Document format checkbox is set? The name you use for the 
format will then appear in the lists showing in the From format: and To 
format: slots in the

Tools > Preferences > File Handling > Converters

dialogue. There are a number of Converter Definitions already from 
different formats to LyX format.
