We had the idea to start a sustainable business. We now have two choices:

1: Start a sustainable ecommerce shop -> become a popular brand with traffic -> invite other sustainable brands to sell their stuff on our website like amazon does

2: Try to make other brands to sell on our website from the start

I know how to create an ecommerce shop with a blog. I have no idea how to start a business like amazon. Why should other brands choose our website and pay for it if we haven't created any traffic before? Should we learn more about businesses like amazon if that's our goal in the long run? Or would you rather do the things you already know how to do and get started?

I expected Avocados and other fruits/vegetables but it's a typical clothing store.

its 90% clothing but they have other items too. its a marketplace for sustainable and fair trade, ecological, blabla articles. sellers can make an account for ~90€ and sell over their plattform. my girlfriend is their best customer and i think they are well known in the german speaking "eco" community. but i dont know if there is an international/english alternative... but i would bet there is one.
