"Stock up" or "replenish"? Seems not quite.. What are some of the verbs for the action of a restaurant to go to the vendors to obtain the produce or vegetables they need for that day? Not "buy" because let's say the payment is dealt monthly. I thought about "stock up" or "replenish", but they do not sound quite right exactly. Do you have any idea?

I think "restock" or "restock the inventory" or "replenish the inventory" sound ok. I used to work in the retail industry in the UK, and the word "buyer" was used as the job title of people who went out to seal deals with suppliers. For example, I knew a "buyer" who would travel to French vineyards and make deals for the supermarket she worked for to buy wine from the vineyard. So it's likely that restaurants have "buyers", too, or at least the role of "buyer", which may be performed by management or kitchen staff depending on the size of the enterprise.
