Welcome to Onchenda Open Global Food Cooperative’s Online Farmers’ Market!
Buy shopping our Online Farmers’ Market, you acknowledge understanding that Onchenda is “matchmaker” between local food producers and local consumers. We only provide a place for you to get to know your local food producers (hereafter Vendors) and conduct informed transactions. We do not curate, inspect, or otherwise qualify the Vendors or their products. We do, however, require Vendors to complete their profiles on our platform so that you can get to know them, the methods they use and don’t use, and see what certifications they may have, if any. It is therefore up to you, dear Customer, to conduct your due diligence on getting to know and trust the Vendors from whom you are contemplating a purchase. We believe that’s far superior to placing your trust in labels or brand names. See the “Vendor” link at the bottom left of each product page. We do not accept liability for any products sold on this platform. That’s between you and the Vendors with whom you do business, and each has their own refund, exchange, return, order cancellation policies. Rather, we think it better that the local community take the responsibility to police its food producers, and to praise them when appropriate. For this purpose, we have provided a feature for you to write reviews on the Vendors on this platform, and rate them through star-ratings 1 – 5, and encourage you to do so. We will remove any Vendor who consistently receives bad reviews and/or low start-ratings from consumers who have bought their products. Thank you for your participation. Caveat Emptor!
