how do i make a button in gridmarket

I am trying to create an HTML button on one of my pages on gridmarket theme. Right now i am typing this
<a class="button" href="http://www.mysite.com/products/most-popular/">Most Popular</a>

Although, it is not working. You can see the HTML written in the page, rather than a clickable button. It is the same html i used for a different theme. Does FrameMarket(GridMarket) have a specific code to be used for creating a clickable button?

Please advise,

Jonathan
