Hi there,
I hope someone will be able to help with this...

I bought a this pendant light fixture that is plug in, and I plan to remove the end of the cable, and hardwire it.
I will connect the ribbed wire to the white wire, and the smooth wire to the black wire in the junction box.

Here's the problem: the light is a polar plug but only has 2 wires in it, and I'm not sure how/if I can ground it.
Is there something in the fixture that I can connect the junction box's grounding wire to?
If this isn't possible, is it okay for me to go without grounding?

Thanks,
Daniel

Yes, it is okay to just connect the two wires to positive/negative wires in the junction box. If the fixture doesn't have an earth ground connection, then it doesn't require an earth ground.
