Small rural communities close to Argentine's main cities aim to gain benefit from tourists and visitors for the day developing different products. This paper makes a special reference to the small towns located near the city of Buenos Aires, in particular to Tomás Jofré, which aim to bring together stillness, rural heritage un local culinary in order to find a place in the market. It has been observed that not withstanding their attractions, gastronomy is still the main reason to visit this places and that the simple act of "eating" brings with it a sequence of negative impacts which have to bee addressed in order to avoid that tourist stop visiting.
