Any light kit should fit that can be purchased at a home centre like Home Depot or Lowe's. You unscrew the bottom cap and use the two wires in the switch housing not connected to anything (don't disconnect any already connected wires) and covered by wire nuts labeled 'LIGHT'. They're usually white and blue. Then connect black or blue (hot wire) from light kit to black (hot wire) from switch housing, and white (neutral wire) from light kit to white (neutral wire) from switch housing and secure the cap and light kit back onto the bottom of the fan.

As usual, Vincent is wrong. ANY light kit wont work, you need one that mounts with two screws. MOST light kits can be mounted with either two screws or lamp nipple in the center, but there are some that are one or the other.

What you called a lamp nipple, same thing. When you pop out the center plug it's threaded and screws into the hole in the bottom cap and secures with a hex nut on the inside of the bottom cap. The only thing is, depending on the light kit chosen, there's little clearance to insert/tighten the two bottom screws with the light kit installed onto the bottom cap.
