In English "produce" as a verb has a different meaning to "produce" as a
noun (and
are pronounced differently).  A shop selling stuff produced by a farm sells
produce.  So yes, vending=* would be better as it removes the ambiguity,
for the problem that vending=* doesn't really mean that in OSM but is used
conjunction with vending machines.

Oh, and we should really have used product=* rather than produce=* to
that ambiguity, but we didn't.  Mainly, I suspect, because in English
"produce" refers

Don't ask me why that is, but nobody would talk of farm product or factory
