That option has been taken. The market, which is open year-round, sets up as usual on Thursdays in the parking lot of the Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road, but earlier. In recognition of the shorter days, the market opens at 2 p.m. and closes at 5.
Town Hall in Portola Valley will close for a nine-day holiday break at 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20. Town Hall will reopen for regular business at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 2.
Meanwhile, the public library will close at 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and reopen at 11 a.m. on the following Thursdays: Dec. 26 and Jan. 2.
