    Os novos arranjos territoriais que passaram a figurar a partir do final do século XX, estão causando mudanças em diferentes escalas geográficas dos sistemas socioeconômicos. No caso da agricultura, as iniciativas de âmbito local têm surgido como uma resposta às imposições oriundas da produção global de commodities. Produtos típicos ou tradicionais tem sido oferecidos no mercado para satisfazer consumidores que valorizam aspectos como: cultura, tradição, paisagem e cuidados ambientais, criando laços de identidade com o produto consumido. Neste contexto é que surge o SIAL (sistemas agroalimentares localizados), como uma abordagem capaz de analisar as relações entre as atividades agroalimentares constituídas territorialmente, pela valorização e uso dos recursos locais. Com base nesta abordagem o propósito deste estudo é averiguar se determinadas características que configuram um SIAL podem ser identificadas na produção familiar de morango, no Vale do Caí, no Rio Grande do Sul. Como resultado deste estudo pode-se averiguar que o SIAL se configura pelo uso de determinados ativos territoriais locais mobilizados pelos agricultores familiares que estão gerando uma identidade para o local atrelada ao morango produzido no Vale do rio Caí.------------------------------------------New territorial arrangements that appeared from the end of the XXth century on are causing changes in different geographical scales of socioeconomic systems. In the case of agriculture, local initiatives have appeared as an answer to impositions of global commodities production. Typical or traditional products have been offered in markets to satisfy consumers that valorize aspects as: culture, tradition, landscape and environmental care, creating links with the consumed product. In this context emerges SIAL (agroalimentar localized systems) as an approach able to analyze relations among agroalimentar activities territorially constituted and local resources use. Based upon this approach the objective of this study is to check if determined characteristics that constitute an SIAL may be identified in familiar small farmers strawberry production, in Cai River Valley, Rio Grande do Sul State. As a result of this study it is possible to see that SIAL is configurated by the use of determined local territorial stocks mobilized by familiar small farmers that are generating an identity for the local related to strawberries produced in Cai River Valley.
