Specialty food shops--Chicago?

I have to be in Chicago for work April 12-15. I already am hoping I can go to Merchants of Exquisite Spices, Herbs and Seasonings | Chicago | Milwaukee | Evanston | Geneva (I'm flying out on Saturday afternoon so I can get there--). For those who live in Chicago, are there any other speciality food shops in the same neighbourhood? I won't have a lot of time (a couple of hours before I have to catch my flight). And, I won't be able to bring meat/cheese back to Canada, but spices, rubs, those kinds of stuff...

I love The Spice House and it's a very interesting neighborhood to walk around in, but I can't remember any other specific places, sorry.

TSH is worth the trip.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
