The rules state that when buy goods in a region you need to have a ship present. However if you have an active colony in the region could you not just buy goods directly to your local warehouse? Ship present or not?

It would seem this is not allowed but was wondering if this was a rules oversight?

No, the rule is the rule.

The rule seems clear enough. If you need a rationalization, consider that

the goods in question (each "unit" of which is enough lumber/iron/whatever to fill half the hold on a basic ship) is on the other side of the island from your colony. The land between your and that tribe/whatever that has the goods is rough/mountainous/jungle/whatever, and if there are any roads, they are rudimentary at best. In short, the only feasible way to transport the goods is by ship.

If you need further rationalization, the purse-strings are held by you and your captains -- which is why you have to provide the colonies with an allowance before they are willing to get out of bed on your behalf.

Alright so ship being present isn't on the "Sell Goods" action.

Can I "Colonies Collect" a good into my colony warehouse and then on my turn use Sell Goods action to a market ON the island my colony is at?

No, I don't think so.

The colony is a separate region from the island, so goods in the colony warehouse are not at the region with the market.
