According to the Confluence documentation on http://Importing Content Into Confluence, there is no supported way of importing markdown. Is this the case?
3rd party solutions seem not to work with current, self-hosted versions.
These are the markdown add-ons that support server installations. Of these, the only one that appears to do something close to an import is Marked, which is free and has very good reviews. It allows you to point to a markdown file and show it in a Confluence page.
If this is a one time transfer of .md files, you might want to consider spinning up a free trial version of Confluence Cloud, installing the trial version of one of the Cloud markdown import add-ons (e.g. Confluence Pandoc), performing the import and then exporting the space and importing it into your server instance. (I've never tried this, so I don't know if it's possible, but it's worth exploring if you've got a large amount to import.)
If you you have intermediate familiarity with Python, you may be able to create a simple utility that takes as input a MarkDown file, and creates a Confluence page (as a child of an existing ancestor) that is consistently styled. The utility will use Confluence Remote API, Python Requests, and Python Markdown.
Here are some resources for you:
Python Requests: http://docs.python-requests.org/en/master/
Python Markdown: http://pythonhosted.org/Markdown/
Confluence Server REST API: https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-server-rest-api
The Page Information link is there because the Confluence Server REST API uses Page IDs, and you can use the Page Information menu item to obtain the Page ID of the Confluence page you're viewing.
Using pandoc, I just converted a page of Markdown (exported from the Notion app) into org-mode (an Emacs organizer/markup/task-management/everything "app"), and then used an export module to export that page to JIRA (Confluence) format. I could then paste that into a comment.
I wouldn't recommend it as a regular thing, but it did the job in this case, and I'm fairly fluent in all three markup languages, so I could fix something if it broke along the way.
