Yenipazar itself is a quiet rural town of 6,423 people providing university, high and elementary school education and other facilities to the surrounding districts. In the last two decades the population has declined as people move to Turkey's larger cities for higher education and careers and Yenipazar is selected as one of the Cittaslow towns in Turkey. The local cuisine includes a delicious flat-bread pizza called pide. Adnan Menderes University has a school here offering diplomas in banking and finance. The student population created new income opportunities for the residents of this small town. Social life is also impacted positively from the university, you can find many restaurants and cafes than you would expect from a town of this size.
