Accessing Items through the Front End using GridField

I have a page type called 'Category', which uses the GridField interface in the admin side of things. Using this, all items can be added (and details such as price etc).

However, how can I access these items through the front end of the site? I've got the items to list on the category page, but simply using "$Link" does nothing. I'm still exploring this avenue, so I may have got the wrong end of the stick in how to use it correctly, but if someone could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

Many Thanks,
