Stock was a town in the north of the Marish, lying on the Stockbrook stream near to the banks of the River Brandywine in the Eastfarthing of the Shire.

In The Lord of the Rings, Pippin mentions that The Golden Perch in Stock has the finest beer in the Eastfarthing. The hobbits avoided Stock in order to keep Pippin away from The Golden Perch to stop their journey being delayed.
