No. Only nouns and proper names must have capital letters. A market place is generalized and doesn't need to be capitalized.

No, unless 'Market Place' is the name of a product, or of a service, or of a public square in a city, etc.
The single word 'marketplace' is known to my spell checker and to my dictionary, and is the form I have always known in Britain. Do Americans write it as two words?

No. It's not a specific title, just a generic term. It can be spelled as one word or two--I've seen it spelled both ways. Unless it's part of a title like Wilson's Market Place, it doesn't have to be capitalized.

"Marketplace," meaning the trading of goods or services for money, is a single word and is not capitalized. It is not a proper noun, the name of a specific thing, but a concept.
This product suits the regional marketplace, but cannot compete in the global marketplace.
When it's two words, it's the literal place where a market is or has been.
