Farmer Maggot is a well-respected Farmer, and the owner and operator of Bamfurlong in The Shire. [34.3S, 64.4W]

During the Farmers Faire he has brought his best crop to a large mushroom tent next to the Three Farthing Stone. There he is chatting with gentlemen such as Hamfast Gamgee and Tolman Cotton. There he is not acting as a Grocer.

Decades ago he met Frodo:

'One trouble after another!' said Frodo, looking nearly as much alarmed as if Pippin had declared the lane was the slot leading to a dragon's den. The others looked at him in surprise.
'What's wrong with old Maggot?' asked Pippin. 'He's a good friend to all the Brandy bucks. Of course he's a terror to trespassers, and keeps ferocious dogs - but after all, folk down here are near the border and have to be more on their guard.'
'I know,' said Frodo. 'But all the same,' he added with a shamefaced laugh, 'I am terrified of him and his dogs. I have avoided his farm for years and years. He caught me several times trespassing after mushrooms, when I was a youngster at Brandy Hall.' — The Fellowship of the Ring

However, Farmer Maggot was most helpful and bravely helped the Fellowship to escape the Nazgûl riders.
