Depends on the surrounding text, when you use indenting for the main
text i would also use indenting for the quoted text. To let the quoted
text stand out you can indent all paragraphs with

...

\startblockquote
...

...
\stopblockquote

..

or you insert empty lines before and after the quoted text

\setupdelimitedtext
   [<environment>]
   [spacebefore=line,
    spaceafter=line]

etc.
