As far as I can see, you already have a default route. That is why you are getting that error. Your default route is the following:

default dev venet0 scope link

You must change it instead of adding a new one. Try this:

[root@marketport tmp]# ip route change default via <gateway ip> dev venet0 src <your ip>

As lsalab said, you already have a default. There can only be one default, if there was more than one then what would "default" even mean? You need to change your current one, not add a new one.
