Just roll your own! Here is what i use:

\definestartstop
   [quote]
   [before={\startnarrower[1*middle]\blank[big]},
     after={\stopnarrower\blank[big]}]

This gives you the commands

\startquote-\stopquote

Just edit the definition to get the effect you want. And/or make new ones!

Note that ConTeXt by default is rather bland. The defaults are not  
intended as some typographic ideal, in contrast to LaTeX.

Best wishes
