Even with names such as Rumi Spice and Zen of Slow Cooking, we can’t promise that the latest Five Local Chicago Brands to Try This Week will bring you inner peace. But they certainly provide delicious, easy options for your summer meals and snacks.

Along with those two great companies, meet Nemi Holisticks, and two companies — Field + Farmer and Within/Without — that graduated from FamilyFarmed‘s Good Food Accelerator. Five Brands to Try is brought to you by Naturally Chicago and SPINS.

Have a great and safe week… and buy local!
