Hi, how do I create a page that shows several product with descriptions? I know I can display multiple product by creating a collection but if I do that, none of the descriptions appear, only the name of the product, price, and then the buy buttons. Am I unable to do this because I'm using the Dawn theme? 

 

Here's a sample of a collection: https://www.philippinebooks.com/collections/food-collection

 

I want to do this because I want to create a page that will function as a catalog to prospective buyers. As such, I need the descriptions to appear.

Keep in mind when you add extra things per product display on a page you are bloating the total page size and also needing to likely fix the styles to accommodate all the extra space being sucked up or outright make a custom layout. 

This varies wildly among themes, if a theme doesn't already have a collection setting/view, or section like that , or custom-liquid blocks to tailor, then you need to customize the theme to have some catalog behaviors for collections.

You can try your luck and search your problems keywords on the forums for a specific theme and see if there's a followable solution.
