It seems that this involves negotiating the prices of items in the market. That is normal in many markets, although not in the US nor in England. However, the grammar of this is a bit strained.

"All bargained for"
To bargain means to negotiate something which has value.
I found this hat so beautiful. I can buy it from you
In this sentence I'm basically bargaining the hat.
When it comes to the marked sentence "all bargained for" is similar to "all for sale"...it means that you can buy it just in case you want it.
Get it now?
