Amplify Your Business


Episode 197: Oonnie

Featuring Nicole Matos of Oonnie

Listen as a podcast:

For Episode 197 of Amplify Your Business, we’re joined by Nicole Matos, the founder of Oonnie and CEO of Rivet Construction. Oonnie is, essentially, an online farmer’s market. Small and medium sized local food producers can join Oonnie and easily set up their own shops to get their food products online and available for customers to buy quickly, and easily. Customers can then go to a single website, Oonnie, to find all of the local food products they want to buy. The Oonnie difference is that all products can be put into one basket, even from different vendors, and checked out all at the same time. As well, unlike farmer’s markets, Oonnie is available 24/7.
