Generally the term "market equilibrium" implies that prices are at an efficient level. For example, if the price of wheat were set inefficiently low, farmers might leave it rotting in the field while others would want it at a higher prices that would encourage the farmers to harvest it. If a decentralized market sets the price of wheat, it will tend towards an efficient equilibrium price.
