Medicinal plants offer a wide range of services including monetary benefits. In view of the importance of medicinal plants marketing, the present study was conducted in the Uttarakhand state of India. The traders were interviewed for collection of information on the medicinal plants in active trade. Thirty medicinal plants were documented during the survey those were in active trade. Different plant parts of these species such as fruit, root, leaf, stem and bark were sold in the market. The dried leaves of Allium stracheyi Baker had the highest cost in the market (Rs 3000 per kg), followed by Picrorhiza kurrooa Royle ex Benth (Rs 2500 per kg). Of the total 30 traded species, 10 species are categorized as the threatened species. There is an urgent need for conservation of medicinal plant species in order to maintain their sustainability and the business associated with such a precious natural resource.
