This paper investigates on evaluating the consumptive use value of indigenous plants of Maefak sub-district, San Sai district, Chiang Mai province. Value of the Gross Village Product (GVP) is applied. The empirical results of consumptive direct use value in 2015 present that the total value equals approximately 15 Million Baht including 2.971 Million Baht of roots/tubers plants consumption, 3.333 Million Baht of leaves/shoots/stalks/stems plants consumption, 2.421 thousand Baht of flowers plants consumption, and 8.556 Million Baht of fruits consumption. Therefore, to consume indigenous plants help reducing the household expenses equals 4,376.400 Baht per year. Promoting indigenous plants consumption is not only reducing the household spending but also solving the environmental problems according to no chemicals use in indigenous plants.
