I do not know the characteristics or the contexts of your workflow, but
seen the case from the outside, from what you comment I would say that
it would not have a lot of sense for you to write your Org docs in
Markdown, since Org is also a lightweight markup language, but much more
powerful than Markdown. Org mode is intended to write in Org syntax.

I started writing my notes in Markdown, and when I migrated to Org, I
converted all my old Markdown notes to Org via pandoc.

Anyway, inside an Org document you can write Markdown using a source

#+begin_src markdown
your text in markdown...

If you do C-c ' inside the block, you can edit it in another buffer with
the markdown mode activated[1].

You can also generate a * .md file from that block (see

#+begin_src markdown :tangle my-file.md
your text in markdown...

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
